    Loyalty

    All those times I let you cry on my shoulder
    Loyalty
    All those times I let you keep me awake
    Loyalty
    All those times I kept your darkest secrets without you asking
    Loyalty?

    What has it gotten me?
    A rusty old heart that’s not useful to anybody
    All these years I lied for you, cried with you
    Loyalty

    Remember that time you fell down the stairs?
    Loyalty
    Remember the time you were sweating on camera?
    Loyalty
    Remember the tears you shed and no one knew?
    Loyalty

    What did you give me?
    A few little promises that you’ve some reason kept from me
    All the times I tried to protect you, defend you,
    Loyalty

    So when you look at me now, what do you see?
    Loyalty
    But there sure ain’t none for me.
    Loyalty

    Take your puppet strings and lies from out of me
    Stop assuming I’ll always be here and stop doubting me
    You’re losing everything around you, and I’m about to be
    The only one left standing, with one fucking ounce of
    Loyalty

    Remember who you are
    Loyalty
    Remember what you stood for
    Loyalty
    Remember what you left for
    Loyalty
    Remember who’s been there from the start
    Loyalty

    The only thing you have left in your lies
    Loyalty
    The only thing you have severing your life
    Loyalty
    I don’t believe you remember it’s name
    Loyalty.

    And yet, there’s still no truth from you, and none for me.
    Loyalty?

    Lol! Thank you, I was pretty proud of it myself. A big thing with my own writing to achieve. I thought halfway through it was sounding a bit like a song...but I can't rap, and I can't make beats.

    It feels very real and it's very striking. Thanks for posting.
