DAMAGED

The painful truth 
I fell for you
A big mistake
What could I  do?

I can’t erase
Or change the past
It wasn’t real
It didn’t last.

Like a puppy
Like a child
I got involved 
I was beguiled.

Lost my compass
Point of view
Thought I’d always
Be with you.

You led me down 
A rabbit hole
You were forceful
You were bold.

You were charming
So beautiful 
I was enthralled 
Delusional.

Nothing mattered
All  I knew 
Was I had fallen
Hard for you.

Candlelight 
Too much champagne
Nights in your arms
The fear …. the shame.

Sex till dawn
Lust and wine
But you were never
Truly mine.

In the end 
You wouldn’t stay
You left me here
You walked away.
