Foolish Man

I couldn't understand
Why you ran to the other man
I wanted to give up and throw up my hands
But something
Kept me there
In that circumstance
I never knew why
You'd abandon this life
We'd created a family in our time
But something
Made you run
My heart is not able
And my soul is crushed
All options are off the table
You dictate the terms
Of my surrender
So we can get back to living
This love fable
I have lost
Too many nights
Missing your touch
We once had forever
And now
Our love is harder to remember
Than our last fight
