Arousing opulence of ancient ballrooms
She creates her own make-believe world
Waltzing coyly in terpsichorean rhythms
Upon glittering stage where they sell love

abuse, betrayal, confusion, how
I once knew a gentle poet boy
Pretending to be the real McCoy
He lost two in a row
betrayal, abuse, addiction, anger, angst,
You ripped me
One word at a time
Shredded my smile
Pulled at my sensitivity
I was never strong enough
To pull back my paper heart
