Oh my tarnished heart
Do you remember when you were shiny and new?
Before the reality of life set in
When nature was all you saw and you believed in kindness
Before tv and pollution contaminated everything good
When you were just perfect for being you
Before they told you what you needed to be
When you were innocent and full of wonder
Before the ugliness of humanity showed it’s face
When you believed in something
Tarnished heart, can you remember when you were shiny and new?
The scent of Chanel #5 and the gift of a jewel
Sometimes dreams just don’t come true.
