Heart Smart

Into the depths of my heart
Your cruel words did pierce
The damage nearly fatal
The pain intensely fierce
I thought, for sure, I'd die
Your betrayal...complete
But then I just decided
Not to lay at your feet
I trusted you completely
That was my first mistake
But I never dreamed that you
Would prove yourself a snake
How could you say that to me
Such hateful words as those
We once had something special
We were so very close
But what have you turned into
Some sleazy lady's man
Without any principles
Just taking what you can
The man I loved, lives no more
And the cad that you are
Is just too far beneath me
To cause pain to my heart
