Another failed relationship

I'll just say it's no one's fault.

(Avoid the truth)

I can't believe it...

all those lies I bought.

Walk strong, walk on

(Alone)

My motivation for life

comes from an independence all my own.

Long ago I opened my eyes

(No longer naive)

That turning point between me & him,

always easier just to leave.

Mistrust and caution,

friends to me at last.

Don't take my attitude personally-

Just learning from my past.

To find a man who really 'loves' me

It's what I'm looking for

(In vain)

If he's not out there, does it matter

If I look for him, the same?

Maybe some of those romantic notions

(Of love)

I still retain.
