Matchmaker

A message to all those matchmakers out there.

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, go away

Leave me alone, I hear what you say

And I tell you to piss off again and again

Matchmaker, matchmaker you won’t have your way

No match can be made…my decision is made.

Matchmaker tells me I have more to give

But yesterday’s gone and I refuse to relive

A past that made me feel so cold

And opened my eyes to how much alone

I can feel and be even with you next to me

Even as you crowded and bullied me.

Alone in your cage of emotional bars

And even worse were your disbelieving locks

And condescending alarms that triggered off

To imaginary movement and to shadows touch

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, go away

Leave me alone, I hear what you say

And I tell you to piss off again and again

Matchmaker, matchmaker you won’t have your way

No match can be made…my decision is made.

Matchmaker tells me that I do not yet live:

Not enough forgiveness in my heart

Not enough will or strength to come back

To turn the cheek and keep looking the other way

Buy why should I? Like a blinded martyr to the cause

That would one day lead me to self-destruct

And destroy so much more than just myself

But you too…if I were to fight back

My resistance, too strong now you can’t handle that

And I’m fed up of fighting so I hold back

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, go away

Leave me alone, I hear what you say

And I tell you to piss off again and again

Matchmaker, matchmaker you won’t have your way

No match can be made…my decision is made.

Matchmaker guilt-trips me for not turning back

But has never asked me how deeply you cut

When you denied me the tenderness of touch

The warmth of your stare

When even the sound of your voice thinned and disappeared

When you made me a beggar for scraps of your time

And a beggar for affection that was offered outside

And like a fool because of you I denied all offers to be satisfied

But then you tried to brain wash me into believing it was all fine

That the only problem was fabricated by my mind

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, go away

Leave me alone, I hear what you say

And I tell you to piss off again and again

Matchmaker, matchmaker you won’t have your way

No match can be made…my decision is made.

Matchmakers sell me your ticket every chance they get

No lottery can buy me: the point they don’t get

Butter you up till you sound like the path I was destined to take

Overlooking the rubble you left in your wake

When you hollered at me and made me shake

To grant you re-entrance would be a mistake

Yet I must admit not one I’m likely to make

No matter how lonely or cold it gets

I’ll face the elements with no regrets

Because it’s a cold that won’t bring me death

But build me character and mold me instead

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, go away

Leave me alone, I hear what you say

And I tell you to piss off again and again

Matchmaker, matchmaker you won’t have your way

No match can be made…my decision is made.

I tell Matchmakers no way, I won’t have you back

Show them no tears for them to attack

Keep hidden the scars so no one would see

Bite my tongue until it bleeds’

Hold back the screams that would make me free

Of you bulldozing matchmakers, leave me be

Matchmaker, matchmaker, leave me be

Leave me be

Damn it to hell, leave me be

Leave me be…

I have found peace….leave me be.
