You gave me “Sunshine and Roses” dancing bears,
floral bouquets, flowing hearts and candied kisses
opening my sorrowful eyes with amusingly
delicious images calming my discontent and sadness
with sweet and succulent breaths of love
touching my helpless heart on darkened days
with fairy dreams and false contentment.
I’m sorry I love you, I’m paying the price.
I’ll take the hurt for free as extra baggage.
You can keep the heart I gave you.
It is forever yours.
I have the broken one.
