Heart Dust

Buttercup's Bullshit

She guarded her heart like a fragile treasure

never letting anyone get close

he came along breathing new life

into her battered lungs

like quick silver seeping

into the cracks in her armor

when he reached for her

she hesitated & tried to resist

but after time she fell under the spell

of his smoldering eyes

releasing the grip

letting down her guard

she knew she wasn’t perfect

she made mistakes

but she tried to be better

for him

she handed him her battered heart

only it was too late

he turned & walked away

letting her heart fall through his hands

smashing the last remaining bits to dust
