The End

by

Christopher L. Gerber

They say it takes two to tango, but baby I'm flying solo and you don't want to dance.
I'm getting tired of the games we play; but doing my best to hang on and stay.
I need to swallow that concrete and get up off my knees.
No more begging please or do you feel me because I've loved, learned, and got burned.
So I'm holding my head up high towards the sky and looking for that new life.
I'm gonna wipe the tears, no more beers, and pray that you understand.
I can't take the pain no more of feeling used and abused with emptiness inside.
I was always on the move feeling like I had something to prove, but wasit all just to convince me of something we couldn't be.
You can't push something that's just not right so here comes the end of the fight.
I put down the glove, express my last effort of love and walk away.
I understand now that some people just weren't meant to be and as far as I know, that's you and me.
Baby, believe me when I say I'm sorry that this couldn't work.
You wouldn't believe how much I wanted to stay and never wanted to listen to me say.
No more begging please or do you feel me because I've loved, learned, and got burned.
I'll never forget you and the times we've shared, no one would ever come close to compare.
You'll always be tucked in the back of my mind and in the middle of my heart so I can always rewind time in which we will never part.
I've saved the best for last, the deepest contrast of two lovers truly for each other.
I'll always wonder what was the last thing you felt inside and if our love was ever really alive, but at least I can say I tried.
But it hurts me in the worst way; no more begging please or do you feel me because I've loved, learned, and got burned.
