He used to come and go as he pleased.
Present for a moment to catch up on current events
and pulling the disappearing act after he’s had an earful.
She has learned not sit around and wait
for him to make his existence known,
a huge mistake on her part
because she was petrified to move on without him
in her already complicated life.
It took her long enough to realize that she was only
being used as a pawn in his chess games of lies and deception.
All her tears have dried up from that moment on.
Her happiness won’t be compromised for lust.
