Cradle Killed Love The fatal trait was hers to grieve-- Too old for heartaches, she believed— Sweet traitorous blue ripped from the skies This whistle blue ---enticed his eyes-- This fellow's time was lightly passed. Her artless smile numbed him aghast An email heart of charming dreams Slaughtered him with schoolgirl schemes. Her father warned her as a child Stout hearts be wary-- stiffly styled-- The only way to live pain free Is cradle-killed before you’re three. Just number loves paint on your smile-- let lovers chase a quarter mile let them think they've won the race tell them that you've dreamed their face.
V Anderson-Throop 2013
