you took me in

under your wing

you took my hand

made my heart sing

you led me to water

I nearly fell in

you led me astray

places I'd never been

you tried my patience

and betrayed my trust

you tried to persuade me

to give in to lust

you held me close

like I was yours

you held me back

closed other doors

you gave me trinkets

an occasional kiss

you gave me worries

to casually dismiss

you meant a lot once

to someone with none

you mean nothing now

for what you've undone
