Standing my ground

You think because you're beautiful
I'll bend to your will?
That's happened to me too many times
To let it happen again.

You may try to entice me
With occasional shows of affection,
Some kind words,
A touch on my arm..
A smile with flirtatious eyes.
But I'm standing my ground.

I don't trust you.
There is kindness and loyalty
Somewhere inside,
But you've buried it
Beneath years of your own pain.

I like you
More than you know
But until you can prove me wrong
I cannot trust you.

You'll go out with me
Then disappear with another man.
I'll bring you gifts and love
You'll leave me empty and hurt.

I will not do that to myself
I will no longer be used.
