Go ahead. Walk away from the only man who ever truly loved you. Walk away from the one person who stood by you through all the heartache, all the turmoil, all the trauma. Walk away from the one man who understood you, who never forsook you or abused you.

Walk away and go to a man who will only use you for what he can get out of you and then cast you aside when you have nothing left to give.

Walk away from the one who really cared.

That's right, baby. Walk away from him and come to me...

    This idea began as a potential song years ago when I had a band but I never actually wrote it down. So I converted it to a little story instead. I'm not in a rhyming mood today!

    Love it Christopher. The last line took me completely by surprise. And it would make a great song! 🙂

    Thanks, Neville. I appreciate it. I might try to write it as lyrics one day if the mood strikes me. I used to still write and record songs on home recording equipment, playing all the instruments myself long after I no longer had a band, but I've lost my muse in recent years. I don't really have the passion for it that I used to.
