Another true story, but this is sung with Medieval music. The tune was just in my head and I had to write it, though I've don't remember ever listening to any, except in old historical things on television.

He won me over, with words of sweet love;
It seemed he came straight from Heaven above.
He made me feel like a queen;  he was the King.
His talk was cheap; he didn't mean a thing.

Now that I'm hooked, I just sit and wait for him.
He says he'll be there, but it's only a whim.
Seemed so sincere, that I made myself believe;
He was everything, that I'd ever need.

I won't believe him anymore.
Take that advice, show him the door!
He's not the one I thought he was.
I don't need him, no I won't need him.

He held me close and his kiss is was like a dream.
I loved him so much that I told him how I feel.
He said he felt the same, I meant more than anything.
He'd ever known, but he don't mean a thing.

I don't need him,  no I won't need him,
Any more.

Okay Donni, write this as a poem, not a song. The breaks keep you from seeing how the words flow, and I think they flow nicely! When you write songs, yes, you put in the breaks with the notes, but in poetry, you need an even flow or as I do, write so you either slow down the reader, or speed them up if its needs that.

You have a good start here and I'd like to hear the music that accompanies this poem.

can't get HERE from THERE by Vince Sanders

The early 1970’s might have been the most appropriate time in America’s history to set up a radio news network for and about Blacks in the United States, more appropriate than any ..
