A Broken Mirror

Our love was destined to fail,
I tried to save it without avail,
For between us, you built a fence,
Leaving me weak without any defense...

You turned my heart into a fortress
Inhabited by a soul sad and hopeless
But time has done the healing,
Making me self-confident with new feelings...

In the Mighty One above,
I found fortitude, peace and love...
I got the courage to bury my past
And forgetting a love I failed to cast...

Clearly, you became a loser and sinner
While I became stronger and a winner...
Now, I stand on a solid ground,
Hoping for a real love to be found...
