Ride or Die

Never 
have I lied
as to who was I
always what you see
is what you get.
Loyalty.
Love.
Adoration.
Trying to help
make life better.
We met
a tumultuous love affair
one that haunts me to this day.
Whirlwinds of romance
dancing beneath the moon
skating upon the frozen lake
all while holding you dear.
I am who I am.
I never did lie.
I am the woman that will ride or die.
Trust
abused
broken
thrown in my face
sneer upon your lips.
I never meant as much to you
as you did to me
this is something that I must place
within a framework of understanding.
I still do not get
how you could walk away
say good bye so easily?
Who I am
is exactly who you see
no fantasy 
only reality.
Would have given you everything
would have given you my all.
You twisted my words
made me feel small.
So I had to leave.
No relationship.
No friendship.
A solid good-bye.
Time has come
no longer any tears
sympathy is what I feel
for the ruination of something so good.
Ride or Die.
That is my creed.
I loved you with everything I had.
I loved you with my soul.
You could have had me forever
instead…..
you shunned my heart.
Ride or Die.
You will never know another woman like me.
