I wanted Love,
but met Rape;
standing in the corner of every bar.

I wanted Love,
but met Sin;
In every tongue that was spoken.

I wanted Love,
but met You;
who told me that I’m worthless.

I wanted Love,
For now I want nothing, no more.

For the anger in your eyes, and
the venom in your tongue;
brought a coldness to your heart;
but a richness to your guise.

Fooling me,
Teasing me,
To fall in love,
with Love.

Your lie was what Love was,
Is, and will be–
now, and until tomorrow,
when I find another he.
