Hate the Game

Not the Player

By Charlene EllisonPublished 6 years ago 1 min read

When a woman falls in love with a man she sees qualities in him that later she can see growth

Unfortunately, some men are in love with the idea of being loved yet do not fully know how to love

They see a woman as a mother, wife, or someone who can handle struggles yet never actually fully noticing a woman’s worth

He walks around as if he is the gift to other women never truly noticing the change that has begun

The little things are not as important and the need to search for a companion when he is already taken

He holds his head high with the sigh that he has the woman… he has won

Love can be for a minute or it can last for a lifetime, yet it takes two people who recognize each other as one

But when one is taken for granted and does not feel the love is there then it seems as if it drifts away

Then when he searches for her she was looking for something real and she was finally done

Tired of the games that was played and the lies that kept displaying for his personal gain

When a woman’s fed up there is nothing that a man can do… especially when he knows she deserves better

Now he is forced to be with a woman that he feels nothing while looking out the window while it rains

No… It is said that how can a woman be so stupid and never leave a man who clearly is not ready for a commitment

Easily… They lie, cheat, and mislead while all along looking for a replacement yet never want to let that one go

Not for fear of her doing worse but finding someone who knew her past and was heaven sent

No… this does not pertain to all men but only the players who play the game without the woman knowing the truth

Don’t hate the game… Not the player for what he did but what he did not do

However, it’s only selfishness to waste your time and youth
