Lessons Unlearned

(Photo by Dan Felstead of Wood and Pixels Narratives.)


He loves me, he loves me not
Why does it always boil down to the same thing
A woman gives her heart freely and without hesitation
But a man gives his until the next one rolls around

Whatever happened to love at first sight
In sickness and in health, till death do us part
Forsaking all others is shattered with the new slice of bread in town
Leaving a trail of broken hearts like bread crumbs on the ground

Will women never learn the lesson handed down from one another
Once a cheat, always a cheat, at least in the eyes of the beholder
Heartache is a messy affair, like vengeance best served cold
But the warm fuzzies of lasting love can still scorch a heart with its heat

(With all the unfidelity scandals rocking the political world the past few weeks, I thought this was appropriate)
