"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!
