Love of Rachel

You hold her for ransom…

She knows not of your guile
Too young and too in love to see through your smile
Played as an instrument while you write the score
You buy her affections and drag her heart on the floor

Innocent and vulnerable, like clay in your hands
I silently watch…what chance do I stand?
Because of her I still let you into our lives
Still amazed at your ability to manipulate and lie

Though I’ve tried to include you year after year
You still whisper darkness into her tiny ears
Despite my conviction she ends up confused
Your worst qualities into her fragile mind, transfused

Though I can’t keep her from you (if only I could…)
Know that my love for her will not be misunderstood
For it is not fickle, flickering, or vain
And over the years it shall not wane

Unlike your ugly desperate attempts to deceive
Which soon she will see through and no longer believe,
My love is much stronger and will carry her through
For it is unconditional, and you never knew
How to love someone in this unselfish way
So go on with your ruse;
I can see you beginning to fade away.
