Because it wasn’t acceptable
Than anything else today
You turned your back to me
And threw our love away

There was a lot we’d share
Yet you put yours first
I was a muse that stirred
Quenching your inner thirst

When you no longer exist
Will I be the girl that loved you
Or the one that got snubbed
But never the love we knew

Your headstone will have all
Son, husband, father and friend
Not the beloved of my bane
Always anonymous in the end
