Once Burnt, Twice Shy

if only i were that smart.
one abusive relationship,
and i move into an insane one.
that falls apart,
and i move into an unhealthy one.
that ends,
and i move into one
based entirely on lies.
what's wrong with me?
you'd think i'd learn...

once burnt
twice shy
i should've seen it
shouldn't i?
i should've seen it coming
but i was too busy looking back
but when i give my heart away
it always ends up like that
once stabbed
in the back
twice afraid
to let you have me
i put my trust
in all the lies
four times burnt,
and never shy
