Puppy Love

You strung me along

A puppet on a string

Doting puppy on a leash

A boomerang to fling

You demanded ditties

And promptly I would sing

In my eyes you were regal

You reigned my life as king

I wanted us to work

So I gave my everything

You took all you could get

Consumed all I could bring

Gave nothing in return

And this the bitter sting

You left me there stripped bare

Devoid of anything.
