Bitter disappointment --
Is a deflated understatement.
Like an anchor, her aching heart fell,
While toward her throat her stomach expelled.
Each time she stood up, winded and scarred,
The Beast knocked her right back down, hard.
"Don't worry, honey, it'll happen one day;
Just relax; give it more time," they would all say.
But in hopelessness she is used to wallow,
For time is cheap when dreams are hollow.
