Sweetheart Deal

By Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal

Sweetheart Deal

No sweetheart deal for me.
Every sweet heart will break.
I find that to be the honest truth.
Here amongst the ruins
I do not find any such sweetness.

I can promise nothing and
I never promise anything.
Your sad heart will not be sweet
when it is gutted like fish.
That heart will be breaking
like hearts all over the globe.

I do not find any such sweetness
in a baby heart or a grown up's
heart. Love may find you and
that will be your break.
You won't be sad forever.
