    My ear tried your words.
    My mouth tasted them.
    They were sweet...then bitter.

    They made me stagger
    Like a drunken man.
    Yet, like an alcohlic,
    I needed them...so I thought.

    Your web was spun beautifully.
    I was caught therein.
    But God took His Broom,
    And tenderly removed me.

    Though my heart dwells
    Among old stones...
    Jesus is my rock.
    I'm finally over you baby.
