I Saw Her

by Blackpearl

I saw her yesterday, the one who stole my love away.
The one who made it hard for me to breathe, sleep, or eat.
She made the nights seem an eternity.
Well, yesterday I saw her and she saw me.
It was nothing like I thought our first meeting would be.
I didn't look how I wanted to look the first time she laid eyes on me.
And as for her
She wasn't prepared  for our first meeting either.

She dawned a short cut, so very similar to my own
She had a black puff coat, that I myself also own
She was lighter than me, in the sunlight, her skin clearly shown
It made me speculate, " did he like lighter girls all along?"

I'll let you in on a secret if you promised not to tell
I was angry at myself
For allowing her to be the reason for my personal hell
The reason why I didn't take care of myself
Didn't eat well

But now I see
That she is not so different from me
And laying eyes on her
Allowed me to be free
Free from the torments of the enemy
Telling me that she is better or prettier than me
Seeing her made me realize
That there is nothing wrong with me
But him who lost the prize
Seeing the woman that my took place
Made me realize that it was not love in the first place
She made me see myself
Three short years ago
It made me admit, what I didn't want to know
Seeing her set me free
I am no longer a prisoner
Of  this insanity
I am free to go about my way
And hope for the day
That seeing someone like me
Will one day set her free
