i loved you,
 
thinking that was enough.
it's hard to imagine
arming the person
who'd strike you down.
 
honestly—
 
i've learned that honesty
is a double edged sword;
in handing over power
you did your worst.
 
what can i say?
 
when you say it was my mistake
for being too trusting
and i've become an example
that mirrors the norm.
 
loyal to a fault.
 
lost between your linen storms,
forged by forced carnal warmth
amidst the veil of lust
disguised as love.
 
only then you wanted me.
 
i'm a record broken
by repeated deceit
and the truth is i was played
because you never loved me.

Me
