she trusted you
she opened herself
exposed herself
she let you in

she never suspected
believing in you
was a mistake
she was naïve

you broke her innocence
destroyed her faith
crushed her heart
left her disillusioned

she never thought
your words were lies
and your endgame
was betrayal

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
