The Swagger of Ten Thousand Men

He came along in an instant

He had the swagger of ten thousand men,

but he was really a freight train

ready to plow over anyone he couldn’t command….

He said he bought you flowers,

when really it was months ago

and now their bent somewhere in  a garbage dump

and don’t even matter to you anymore…


Cuz’ all the flowers in the world

couldn’t bring back the potential good days…

all the flowers in the world..

couldn’t have freed me from the maze…

you created inside my mind…


He came alone in an instant…

He had the face an angel could love

but it was really just a painted on mask…

disguising all the hate he burrowed and called love….

He said he’d be the best thing you would ever have….

But as he left, the sun rose up in the clouds…

And you could sleep peacefully for hours….


Cuz’ all the sleepless nights

Can’t bring back sleeping throughout the day…

all the sleepless nights

Couldn’t have freed you from being drained…

by his somber presence…

Felt miles away..

So somber, even the doves flew away…
