Feasting on Breadcrumbs


She leaves him breadcrumbs,
He makes a feast of it.
She pays him lip service,
He hears her singing his praises.
She barely casts him a glance,
He feels lavished by her attention.
The bounty of his affections wilts in her hands;
Her skin so thick that Cupid’s arrows unable to find their mark.
Why then can he not be released from his dream-walk?
Surely, his is not the only heart that is destined to break.
