Once her gentle heart,
which burned bright as an ember
with that all consuming fire
had secretly become immune
to those feeling which held her
captive to his desire.
 
Once her gentle heart
which had opened and blossomed
such as does a tiny flower
began to slowly wither
began to see the obscene bitterness
of love’s wretched power.
 
Once her gentle heart
which felt the pain of his brutality
and finally did see
the mistake it made
in forsaking all and giving itself
to someone such as he.
