She Said ... I Said

She said love is blind and cruel,
A sadistic king, who lost his crown,
She said her mind is but a fool,
It has always let her poor heart down.

I said love is sacred and divine,
Yet tears and sighs are its token,
I said I won‘t perfect this heart of mine,
Unless it’s torn and hurt and broken.

She said “you’re weak!”
I said “you’re wrong”
She said “ it hurts”
I said “ get strong”
She said” you’ll be sorry”
I said” I won’t”

She said” I love you”
I said” I don’t”.
