You never learn

In search of true love you took after

enticing shadows fastened to the night.

You then, fell into a pit of melancholy

dragged into dimness, where there was no light.

Appealing grins drew you into the darkness

where all the illusion was gradually stripped away.

Your, innocence, was stolen by the ones

who selected you to play, the games they play.

Your delicate heart was effortlessly broken,

then shattered into a thousand array.

Also, your torment was torpefied by drugs and liquor

under whose tutelage you thought your heart will mend, quicker.

You never believed this could occur, yet it has, and opened all those old wounds .

I warned you before, but you won’t ever listen to my honest sounds

  2. Oh God, this is so painful. I am deeply touched. So many innocents fall into such traps, it’s saddening. Btw, the rhymes were soooo perfect, I recited the poem aloud to myself and it felt very musical. πŸ˜„ And this one line, “enticing shadows fastened to the night.” I always get mesmerized by your use of phrases and imagery. I’d definitely like to get some lessons. You’re just too good. ☺

      1. And you are Mr Angel when writing magical poems. ❀ Samepinch for everything, huh. And no good words for the next few weeks now. 😼 It’s like having too much chocolate or Maggi. If you have a lot of it, it’s unbearable the next time. 😹
