From Love to Hate
by Charles Alexander Weese
Like the sleeping newborn, my innocence was true,
But all that changed the moment I met you.
Such a splendid life, I thought to myself,
Blinded by love, not knowing my need for help.
Each morning I awoke with thoughts of you,
Denying the facts of the scandalous deeds you do.
I gave you my soul, even my trust,
And you threw it away for one night of futile lust.
I was strangled by the tangled web you weaved.
And it's lucky for you I gave more than I received.
A garment of love covered my eyes,
making it impossible to see through your lies.
I must admit, at times you were great,
but your deceitful ways turned my love to hate.
