This work has reached the exceptional level
A poem of loss

A chapter in the book A Book of Love

Deceit

by justafan





I’ve seen and heard of
Love that kills
Never in my mind
Thought it would touch my life
 
But it has
 
It came to me in the form of
A handsome face
A silly smile
With eyes, so brown as to make the color die of envy
 
My mind and heart
Had no chance
Smitten with a glance
 
The smile
A lie
The eyes
Deceitful
The handsome face
Ravaged with time

My heart just another toy
To play with and
Discard
 
Over and over I
Allowed myself to believe
The lies
 
But now,
The bruises to my soul
Are harder to
Hide
 
Seems I waited my
Whole life for an equal to my
Passion
 
Only to come face to face
With the true wielder, of
his ardor, her name:
ADDICTION
