Liar & Fool

I knew this would happen.
I told you this would happen.
You denied
promising me the world
promising me no fear
hold me close
chase the dream
I fall
trapped beneath your hand
unable to break free.
Unable to…..
my heart
I handed it over
with nary a fight
side long glance
long distance romance.
Called my baby girl
made my heart race
even if I never felt your touch
I felt your warm embrace.
Your voice
husky breath
rolls over me
quiver inside
and now…..
I feel erased.
Diminished .
You avowed
bended knee
pain
would never be felt
you have come to slay my dragons
to crown me queen
turning me to jester instead.
Lesson learned…..
again…..
how many times
must I take a sledgehammer
to this cracked heart of mine
to realize
that as sanguine as you be
worlds promised
promises broken
pain you brought to me.
