She broke me like a tree,
With leaves so green and branches free.
Her words were warm and kind,
And her faces wore the same design.

I cannot call her characterless,
For I respected her nonetheless.
But she took my worth and brought me down,
With fears of someone I didn't know in town.

I held onto her without a cause,
But now I see the flaws.
She used me for her gain,
And left me in endless pain.

Now I stand here, broken and alone,
Wondering why I didn't see the unknown.
But I will rise again, like a tree,
