i took a bite out of the love you’ve offered me,
for you’ve coated it with honey kisses and passionate pleas.
i fell for you and the sweet promises you’ve given,
i could not help but feel like a fool for listening.
i am trapped in the snare you’ve laid out for me,
stupid child, so blindly trusting.
i thought i’ve learned my lesson long ago,
to never wear your heart on your sleeves.
although i do long for kisses sweet and deep,
and soft caresses against my skin,
never again will i be tempted,
by empty words and broken promises.
