The Power
by Janice Kimball
how can I entrust you e'er again with my loving heart
when you chose to shatter it right from the very start
how can I entrust you e'er again with my giving soul
when to me, of love, you have never given any dole
how can I entrust you with my most precocious mind
when e'er you have treated me without a care, unkind
your use of me has e'er been twisted, and most cruel
your heart to me has e'er been naught but only cool
and silly, foolish woman that e'er I was, and be
finally through love's foggy dew, I am blessed now to see
though I loved you truly tis' obvious here at the end
that from start unto our finish you never were my friend
whence this final wisdom comes so costly to me now
the many tears have taught me much, and a power they endow
for though my tender heart is yet shattered e'en still
tis' a most wonderous fuel for my art, my song, my quill
