My Broken Heart

This thing we have here

started innocent enough;

it felt good, almost like love.


What began as minor flirtation

led to something more,

something I wasn’t prepared for.


I gave myself to you

and got nothing in return

but a lesson to be learned.


I had a taste of temptation

but I let it take control

and that was always your goal. 


Nevertheless, I won’t let you kill me,

you can’t enslave me,

because another died to save me.
