PRIDE

The pride that went
before your fall
served not to soften
the blow at all

Now, while you lie
and weep, and try
to somehow hide
your hurt from me

Maybe the eyes
that cried the tears
have somehow dimmed,
so you can't see?

You built high walls
of hardest stone
to keep me out, now
you are alone.

Haughty, mighty, foolish pride
you could have taken it in stride--
to be wrong once
is not to die

Perhaps now you know the reason why
what we had was allowed to die?
my love failed to transcend
your foolish pride

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."
