On The Brink of Disaster

on the brink of disaster
tiptoeing at each sound
love was not kind to her
it could never be found
looked high and low
sweet smell of success
wanted to be loved
only had bitter happiness
love would find her
she’d be in ectasy
know this was the one
where she’d want to be
then the tides turned
he was vicious indeed
no slaps were necessary
words made her bleed
from lover to lover
worn to the bone
but it was her fault
for she had never grown
superficial dreams
of a knight in shining armor
but all she found
were men who harmed her
sad as it seems
she never learned
true love is given
to men who know it is earned
