They say ’tis better to have

Loved and lost

Than never to have loved at all.

But I however must

Question the cost

Of a heart

That is stripped raw.

A heart stripped bare

Of all its love

A heart that can

No longer feel.

A heart that once

Fit like a glove

In your palm

Is now

Under your heel.

Left there to rot

And fade away

Soon to nothing

But dust.

Left there to ache

As I watch you play

Your innocent

Games of lust.
