I’ve Been Tricked (Poem #84)

I want my life back on track

back when there wasn’t any love

before that day you messed it up

The way I stayed up all night

with a long, productive sigh

the sight of my work on my desk

smiling at myself for I did my best

Coffee in my hand

finally, a life I understand

I worked so hard for all this

my success, how tasty is its kiss

But that was before you came along

Before the worst

before the curse

I lost my track

will I ever get it back?

I went stumbling down

with no one to catch me on the ground

my heart won the war

this stupidity dragged me this far

curse this feeling

curse me for falling

The loss I could no longer retrieve

ashamed to admit that yes

I was deceived

I just could not believe

that I gave up everything I have

for this tricky venom disguised as love.

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
