You were so droll

And I was so naive

I mistook your dark

Biting wit for charm

Your interest in me

For genuine affection

But I was just another

Object in your eyes

To play with for sport

To pass the dull hours

A game that is placed

On a low hanging shelf

Once the user is bored

And grows tired of it

You never saw me

You never really knew

The heart of a woman

The depths of female

Devotion and loyalty

Love and kindness

Too frequently spent

On selfish lovers

Who can never return

Such love in kind

There is a entire world

Behind these eyes

That has seen

Too much despair

Too much pain

Shed too many tears

To waste a single

Waking moment more

Under your veil

— B.
