Hurt and betrayal, the heart has endured,
Into her painful trap of lust it was lured,
Tears from the eyes, the symbol of pain,
Again, will there ever be strength to love?
Time brings forth healing and new perception,
Wisdom and knowledge as well,
Fear has creeped in so trust the heart shall sell,
From where shall the strength emerge to love?
Another attraction, more affection, heart opened once again,
Joy she brings, possibly to be follwed by sorrow,
Whether a gate to happiness or to the lion's den,
She is my new strength to love.
