Before words could go free,
there was a Stranger In A Strange Town...

Deja Vu

No matter what I do, it's wrong,
The more I try, the more I fail,
I'd not felt that way for so long;
Is it really time to bail?

I never thought I'd wonder that,
Could I have been so wrong again?
When every effort just falls flat,
It might be time to accept the end.

I wrote the words above night last,
When you said flat out, "no matter what",
Which means, to me, the die is cast,
No hidden "ifs" nor "ands" nor "buts".

Now you say you said it merely,
To "get a reaction". Really, dear?
How am I to react sincerely,
To being told we're finished here?

I've been down that road before,
I'll not walk there another day,
Those kinds of head games close the door;
They're not the kinds I want to play.

So there's my reaction to what you said,
You let me know if it's what you meant,
If not, I'll clear it from my head,
To make room for your true intent.
