Thief of Hearts

She woke in a dark room
The silhouette of a familiar stranger tangled in the sheets beside her
She slipped quietly out of the bed and dressed quickly
Eager to leave before he stirred

Like a thief stealing away without a trace
Into the early morning dawn
The promises of a new day on the horizon

She was the thief of her own heart
Never allowing herself close enough to anyone
To risk the loss
