the spell…

was in love…

were ya’ now…

was…

not anymore…

not anymore…

why…

hard ta’ say really…these things come-n-go…you know…when in you’re in love you think there’s no stoppin’ it…no puttin’ an end to this pain ya’ feel all the time…this 50 pound weight ’round your neck…

that’s what love is…

when she doesn’t love ya’ back…yes…that’s exactly what it is…it’s this constant ache ya’ know…this all-out-bewilderment of why…why doesn’t she…and the truth is…she doesn’t have to…that’s what hurts…

i know that love…that feeling of love and loss of love…or a love that was never there to begin with…that feelin’ of hopelessness…i know that kinda’ love…

and ya’ can’t stop it…not knowingly that is…it’ll drag on for what seems to be forever…walkin’ ’round in this fog…this gloomy haze…

yes…

but then one day it’s all gone…that feelin’ of loneliness and sorrow is gone…ya’ don’t look at it the same way anymore…ya’ don’t look at her the same way anymore…that spell she cast on ya’ is gone…

then what…

wait…just wait…there’s always magic ’bout…you’ll be under another spell soon…some other woman will wave her wand and you’ll be right back in the soup…right back in it…

but for now…

for now i count my blessings…
