Image for the poem I wish II Would

I wish II Would've Paid Attention

You caught me on the rebound
Still nursing a bruised heart
From the Iove before you
But you gave me hope
That love could last erasing
all of the pain from the past

How could I know our love
Would go so wrong
That you'd starve me of
Affection and your attention
Chipping away at my love
Until there was nothing there

I searched my past for
Something I might have done
To make you want to bring
Another woman into the picture
But I just couldn't think of one
Don't know why you had to
Be so mean to me

Looking back,  I remember
When we first got together
There were signs you
Weren't the right man for me
Since we were in love I ignored them
Dismissing them as silly thoughts
I wish now I would've paid attention to them
