Innocent Victims (Poem #112)

Never thought that there should be a pattern in love

or if it is just you and this scheme I don’t understand

Years in the making

you found out what’s the easiest way to get in

you track down innocent girls

blind them with diamonds and pearls

then you try to look innocent yourself

even when there’s a burst of wildness

within that you cannot help

I guess that’s how you saw me

just another victim to be

but I learn fast

I was well warned

trust me at the end of all this

when you leave, you won’t be smiling

instead I’ll be the one who’ll leave you wondering

if I was too smart to take the fall

or if I was ever innocent at all
