The Three : The Second

I've crossed paths with so many souls
that captured my attention
But I can only think of three
I'd take the time to mention

The second was a one-night stand
my so-called friend arranged
Her name was Rita and her hold
on me was kinda strange

Somehow she'd tell me how she felt
with nothing but her eyes
But every time she actually spoke
she'd end up telling lies

I felt I'd known her all my life
in just a couple days
Had me completely hypnotized
with her mysterious ways

Her body was a work of art
each line told of her life
with vines and roses everywhere
with leopard spots and stripes

Her night moves had me losing weight
I had her quitting dope
I heard about her checkered past
but I still held out hope

She was no stranger to the spoon
her friends were brown and red
I tried to keep her from her past
and tried to change her head

I kept her under lock and key
it really wasn't fair
I knew it probably wouldn't work
but I just didn't care

And after out first argument
we went our separate ways
She tried but nothing could ever fix
what happened on that day
