A poser among us
So charming …. so cute
I was enchanted
I fell for you.

Allowed  myself
To be tricked and cajoled
I followed your lead 
Did what I was told.

All of the lies
I always believed
Why didn’t I notice?
Why didn’t I see?

I had been scammed
I had been used 
Allowed myself ….
To be played and abused.

You had a plan
From one ….. to the other 
You took advantage
Of each of your lovers. 

I should have known
You came on  so strong
But …. I never thought 
There was anything wrong.

Never suspected
There was no doubt
Until the day 
The day you moved out.
