Foolish Heart

By Caroline Davis

I was so naive
to think you wouldn’t
hurt me yet again

Foolish heart
Something I constantly
experience, as you
choose her over me
helplessly replaced
once I was your “little girl”
but you’ve found someone
new to put first

Guarded soul
I am moving on
from the endless hurt
as I know what to expect

My own savior
I will love myself
and put myself first
since all you do is put me last
Something new
a feeling of self-love
rather than the ongoing hatred
I must learn to love myself.
