refurbish my heart

ignite my eyes

wipe all the dirt and grime from my conscience

I asked him to do these things for me

he smiled, sugar coated

sculpted the facade with his hands

and listened with patience

as I handed my vulnerability to him

as I spoke with confidence

as I damned the last one who had been responsible for the mess

I cultivated a mist around him

so I could only see what I liked

what I wanted to

he threw my trust into the sky

painted a picture for everyone to see

and did it unapologetically

left me there

in the middle of an endless sea

so only I could know what a fool I'd been
