“Heart of Stone”

The promise of forever died 
with a single call from you. 
Seems no matter how hard I tried, 
there was nothing I could do. 
Our clumsy steps fell out of sync 
before the dance had ended. 
I could only stare and blink 
when you felt so offended. 
I know my feelings grew too fast, 
that I scared you with my plans. 
You did not want our love to last, 
to get so quickly out of hand. 
I knew from the moment we met 
that you could destroy my heart. 
My determination was set— 
nothing would keep us apart. 
I counted on your affection 
being equal to my own. 
Now I know upon reflection 
that your heart is made of stone!
