By night love came and went
Like a thief of hearts
Leaving pain in her wake
Deliberately cutting into me
Like thorns or slivers of glass
And we bled together
By dawn I realized the truth:
She was never really there
Just another bad dream
But still my heart was gone
Still I felt the pain she caused
Still there were those scars
Maybe there was some reality here?
