A RISING STAR

What was I supposed to do?
I knew that I was losing you
There was no way to change your mind
I knew that we’d run out of time.

You knew what you were looking for
Used up, spit out…shown to the door
There were no options …. I had no choice
I couldn’t speak ….. I lost my voice.

The dye was cast …. got sent away
Had no recourse …. I had no say
Was told the way that it would be
You were done …. so done with me.

You had a plan …. get one step closer
A level up …. once we were over
A rising star …. whose destiny
Simply no longer …. included me.

On your way … straight to the top
I wasn’t one to make you stop
I stepped aside … you barreled thru
No way …. no how …. no stopping you.
