Some say love is always true,

Others say it's blind.

I always thought I knew,

That any love is the good kind.

Until I had my heart shattered,

By one I had constantly trusted.

He hit me down and left me battered.

Now I know I merely lusted.

My heart is renewed,

My soul made clean,

All because of a change of mood,

To be considerate instead of mean.

I've learnt of love and lust,

I now know to trust a few.

And let love for others to turn to dust.

But still let the doves of love coo.


This is dedicated to all those who have reviewed my other poems. Thank you so much. Each of you has brought a candle to heart melting the ice that has encased it.
