The Court of Love

trapI’ll learn to love again someday.

The life I lived was a trap.
I thought that I loved for love’s sake.

I am weeping today.
I am in the court of love.
I know the judge is fair.
She might tear my heart from me.

Love’s laws are tricky.
Those on the dark side of love
only find broken shards.
