Certain - G Clair

He takes her love to meet his need
this bachelor is a selfish breed
she'll tolerate his cruelty for affection;
She's walked on eggshells, feeling sad
and breaking down she sees her dad
but why the anger, why all the correction?

Locked inside her cloud of love
so aimlessly she'll float above
the memories- each time his rage exploded;
and never being good enough
perplexed at why he seems so gruff
when only yesterday he swooned and doted.

She, the ever-loving type
would jump to fix his every gripe
and dance around him while his heart was hurtin'
believing then, "it must be me"
the source of all his angst, you see
but now she knows the truth, of this she's certain.

Taking one last chance she'll try
to reach out to this troubled guy
and longing to become his heart's desire
staged to win his softer side
she'll do her best to smile and hide
the fear, this saintly dear, her heart's a liar.

Never will there ever be
a stable point where they are free
to be, although she'd hoped their love was certain;
the disapproval in his eyes
is something she should recognize
it's been disguised until the final curtain.

"Breaking down she sees her dad"??
I sincerely hope that you are not writing this from personal experience.

P.S. I tried to post earlier but Blogger is not allowing me to post using OpenID.

Wow, it seems that much thought goes into your poems. Thanks for sharing. after reading your explanation, I am somehow reminded of the lyrics of one of my favorite Billy Joel songs; "So I would choose to be with you That’s if the choice were mine to make But you can make decisions too And you can have this heart to break And so it goes, and so it goes And you’re the only one who knows'

and so it goes...I love that song.

I created a character and figured the details out later! Sort of the way an actor will develop a character from the script.
