I once loved a broken man

Brought face to face with his brokenness

he hated me 

And

Because I believed the whole lies

I would have born his burden. 

He would have let me. 

I once loved a broken man

I loved him hard

The best I can

At first

I didn’t know

I couldn’t see

He was broke?

He looked real good to me

I once loved a broken man

In fact

I’ve loved a few

I once loved a broken man

I gave my all

He took it too

He seemed so strong

His touch was sweet

I loved him right

I loved him wrong

Lord

I’ve loved a broken man

I loved that man the whole night long…

Yes I have loved

A broken man

I’ve loved him wide

I’ve loved him deep

I thought this man

Was mine to keep

Didn’t

Know I didn’t know

He was broken

No cracks

No rips

Didn’t never hear no pain

Till I tripped on that broken ish

See

He’d been broken, bludgeoned , bloody, bruised

Ripped still sucking from some angry mama’s tit

He’d suffered hate and been abused

Stifled, ruined, left for dead

Convinced he was unworthy till

That foul mess went straight to his head

Kicked as a youth

 

 

Held under as a man

Bowed at the shoulder

He’d forgotten how to stand

His daddy was lost no hope

Despair

His mama died when born

His babies ain’t even got his hair

He dropped out

Gave up He believed

All their lies

Lazy and lax

He’s screwed his way through

Pillaging women

Breaking fragile bones

Breaking hearts

Breaking homes

I once loved a broken man

I loved him really good

I once loved a broken man

I loved him hard

I loved that man

The best I could

I first I didn’t even know

At first I couldn’t see

That man may have been broken

But he looked darned good to me

I once loved a broken man

My soul

It tried it tried it tried

I loved another broken man

My Soul

It cried it cried it cried

I loved once more a broken man

My soul

My soul

It died

I once loved a broken man

In fact

I’ve loved a few

These men were hard and cold

These men were cruel

But what these men

They never knew

Is that

I

Was

Broken

Too…
