    So you stabbed my heart again and again
    with girls, with words, with lies
    My heart paid no attention, and took
    each betrayal with a jerk of surprise.

    My susceptible heart ignored your flaws
    embraced you ‘as you were’
    But my mind finally noticed these gaping wounds
    and promptly refused to concur –
    but my heart, still hoping, still foolish
    refused to be deterred!

    You saved me though, from you, from myself.
    You hammered in the last nail.
    And now, thanks to you, oblivious savior
    my foolishness no longer prevails.

    Thank you for buying the rope for your
    playing Russian Roulette with my heart
    the bullet finally locked in the chamber
    folly and my ego are now officially
