Traitorous Heart


In sweet desperation

The fair maid she wept

-for promises

-for vows

Un-kept.

From first to last

This hear he claimed

Thus is was

…this heart he maimed.

Casual dalliances

Secret lies

Whence came night

'Twas another's name

he sighs.

Her Lord

Her love

Unfaithful he's been

-Truly betrayal…

'Tis the cruelest of sin.
