When You Loved Me

When you loved me,

We ruled the world.

A king and his queen,

Our love was unfurled.


But I was no queen;

I was your slave.

I was too friendly,

Not what you would crave.


I watched as you hurt me.

I was too afraid.

But you found someone else,

And my choice was made.


When you loved me,

You broke my heart, too,

But with all of my pieces,

I still love you.
