She has changed,
Or my perception of the world has changed.

What happened to those words of love
That stirred a hopeless heart to pride
And then a fall?

Her heart is poisoned,
Her intellect degraded
And I am so afraid of what she is becoming.
I have seen it in myself, and others.
She spirals down to her own destruction
And my best is not enough to help.
I couldn’t even help myself.
