HOLDING ON (re-write)

You were never truly mine 
I held on way too tight
Too much, too soon …. I should have known
I should have seen the light.

I couldn’t breathe …. I couldn’t see
Nothing made much sense to me
Wished that we had never met
Wished that you had let me be.

Love lost …. denied .… then cast away
You were …. as cold as ice
You set your sights …. then followed thru
Your aim was quite precise. 

Such easy prey .… so vulnerable
A mere open invitation
The warning signs were clearly there
Was lured into temptation.

Foolishly…. yes, I gave in
I couldn’t pull away
Hung onto every single word 
Everything you had to say.

Now time is up… you’re on your way
You’ll find somebody new
Someone naive and innocent
Who’ll fall in love with you.

That’s your game…your M.O.
You’re quite the lone contender
A player heartless through and through
Who thrives on sweet surrender.
