Once upon a time
I was your beloved.
Your pretty words flowed over me like balm,
healing my hurting heart.
Then somehow I became the enemy.
And you went off to do the same thing to another fool
How long can love last
when you don't love yourself?
All the words in the world won't mend
a fool's heart.
