You left me in the best of times
of my health and relative youth
with more life ahead than behind
when still naive and a little uncouth

You returned in the worst of times
with my numbed scarred heart
still blaming my lack of intuition
before embarking on a new start

I stored the betrayal without knowing
what future deceit lay in wait
the guilty party now yours truly
as I ate the alluring forbidden bait

Two wrongs never made it right
we lost something along the way
a relationship built on shifting sand
but with you my soul evermore lay
Life experience
