Beat Us To It

They were once like me

Caring and loving and always there

Then they stopped

Leaving you in a place of

Unrequited love and affection

So you had to change the way you did things

Locking it all away to avoid pain

Never wanting to be hurt again

Now with new love in your life

Your expectations are for

A repeat of the past

At least your actions say so

So you’ve already fast forwarded

To the part where you need not show affection

Now I stand here with all the extra

Looking into cold eyes

That feel a pain that I did not inflict
