Dark Knight

Love Hurts

I used to believe that love

Was a white horse with a knight

I used to believe that happiness

Was flowers and rainbows and light

And then I discovered with a brutal blow

Life’s not a fairy tale

And there is no Boat of Ecstasy

On which you and I can sail

I was taught to look for sonnets

Chocolates and flowers

But now I’m starting to believe

In a different kind of power

I was pushed headfirst into this world

Where pain and pleasure mix

I fight to heal my bleeding heart

That nothing else can fix

I am now caught in the darkness

I question all I once believed

And despite all of the suffering

I never want to leave
