The Heart Butcher

Dear the girl who comes next,    
 
I gave him my heart
Over and over again  
And he sold it
He sold my love  
 
Then after all the pain
The nightmares and heartache  
I let him in again  
Just for him to treat me the same  
 
I spilled my feelings onto pages for him
He said my poems  
Brought tears to his eyes
But those were just more lies
 
When he left his said
He did not do anything to me
But what he did not understand  
Is that love is everything to me
 
Out of a list of millions of things  
Love would be at the top
Because without love  
My heart would stop
 
So I gave him the most valuable thing
In the world to me
He took it all
And auctioned it off  
 
All the things he bought  
With the money he made from tearing me apart
And stealing from my heart
Do they fill the hole in his soul?
 
He never had to steal from me
I would have given him everything  
I would have given him anything  
But he choose to take things by force  
 
He sold something priceless  
For a price  
And then he would lash out
But there only one he should blame is himself
 
Hed lay traps
And try to trick me into them
So hed have an excuse  
To hurt me  
 
In his grips the more Id struggle  
The more Id bleed out
And then hed tighten the vice  
To stop me from slipping out  
 
Then when I was snared  
Hed hack off chunks of my heart  
And sell it at a reduced price  
At the meat market  
 
When he couldnt keep me trapped  
He divide me up  
To control who got
The pieces of me  
 
I didnt leave because  
I didnt love him
I left because I knew
He didnt love me

He made a profit  
From my feelings  
But I have something he can never buy
The ability to love
 
So if you want to know  
What his love feels like  
Just take a walk down to  
To your local butcher shop
 
Watch how the knife  
Crudely tares things apart  
And how the butcher  
Puts the chunks of meat up for sale  
 
The bloodbath in the butcher shop
Mirrors how he treats women  
Who knew love
Could smell so foul
