It's just a word

to maintain

your innocence.

You violate me

with that word.

It's something

you say

to keep yourself

from calling me

someone else.

It's a universal
 
language,
 
to sustain yourself.
 
You have no respect
 
for such a powerful
 
expression.
 
For years you have 
 
said that to me.
 
I don't get butterflies,
 
because the word
 
is just a lie.
 
I ask you don't
 
call me that,
 
my name
 
Ruthie and
 
that's who I am.
 
Don't call me
 
SweetHeart.
