One woman's quest for greater understanding through freedom of self expression.

No Fault Collision

No one’s perfect

we’ve all got issues

some we work with

some we just can’t change.

I like my men either simple,

or complicated but self aware.

If you know that you’ve got issues

don’t drag unsuspecting women into your snare.

But you say “no fault collision”.

You say both parties share equal blame.

How is a woman to know

when you’re languishing for days in her bed

that you’ve got issues in your head?

That you can’t cope with your sexuality or passion

and you’ll soon walk away

to date a woman who doesn’t tempt you

so you don’t have to deal with the pain?

I trusted that you meant your actions.

My soul and body were in that bed.

My actions told the truth about my passion.

I had nothing to hide, you had nothing to dread.

Yet you say “no fault collision”.

You say both parties share equal blame.

But you must have known

because you’ve repeated it

so many, many times before.

You had to have known we couldn’t make it

but you failed to stop and let me know.

You’re old enough to know your mind,

you’re old enough to know your game,

you’re old enough to take responsibility

and stop passing around the pain.

Yet you say “no fault collision”.

You say both parties share equal blame.

Well I say someone is to blame and fault

lies with the man who knew the rules of the game.
