A Kinder Love


She used to love
the pretty boys

their rock hard abs
polished toys
the jet-set life
baubles, bling

she used to love the pretty things.

But ugly blame
can leave you cold
stain your name
scar your soul
it can’t erase
the gravel hiss
the slap that stings
when he gets pissed.

She used to love the pretty boys
rock hard abs
polished toys
the jet-set life
baubles, bling

she used to love the pretty things.

Till one day
she woke up grim
knew that she
was through with him
made a plan
packed  her things
and then she drove away.

Looking
for a kinder love
a friend to never tire of
a hand to hold
lips to kiss
a simpler love
a tale of bliss.

She used to love
the pretty boys

rock hard abs
polished toys

the jet-set life
baubles, bling

she used to love the pretty things.

A guarded life
in Eden chained
there’s no one now
that she can blame
just face the freeze
and brave the pain.

She’s looking
for a kinder love
a friend to never tire of
a hand to hold
lips to kiss
a simpler love
a tale of bliss.

For pretty is as pretty does
and a hostile love
whose time has waned

leaves an empty heart

is a nasty shame.

For now
she’s found a kinder love
a friend to never tire of
a hand to hold
lips to kiss
a simpler love
her tale of bliss.
