Don’t come back for seconds
Shields up …. Red alert
Tired of wasting my time
Tired of me getting hurt.

Just a stop on the way
You’re not into me
Just a respite …. a fix
So please let me be.

You’ve broken my heart
Left me …. high and dry
It’s decades later ….
And … I’m still asking why.

I feel so confused .
Would have done anything
Tried so hard to pretend
You would try …. try again.

But you said …. that it’s over
That you changed your mind
So don’t come back over
Not for seconds …. this time.
