Breaking The Rules


I really thought I knew

But I was sadly mistaken

The advantage over me

You had easily taken


The wool had completely

Covered my eyes

As I fell for all your excuses

Promises and lies


You were so dame convincing

Played the part so well

All the while pretending

And I could never even tell


Until the day you faltered

And let your true self out

I finally got a glimpse

Of what you were truly about


I couldn't really believe it

I didn't want it to be so

But now that you're exposed

I have no choice but to go


I will no longer be made

To look like a fool

And never forgive myself

For breaking my own rule


The rule most important

That was number one on my chart

To never again completely give

My already fragile heart
