Like a fool….

I never went fishing you know,
I dipped my toes into the murky and ferocious sea,
But I wasn’t looking for you,
Not really.

You doused yourself in beauty and charm,
And quite the lothario you drew me in close to you,
Scooped me up and so that we could be together.

Like a fool,
I gave you my heart,
In fact I gave you everything,
All of me.

But once you had lured me in and seduced me,
Kept me captive as you’re prisoner,
Your desire changed.

Tantalised with the thrill of capture,
You withdrew,
Left me to wilt like a malnourished flower,
Weak, destitute and fading away.

Although the pangs of heartache protruded throughout all of me,
Hypnotised and mesmerised by your snake like charms,
Broken beyond repair,
I wished that you would stay,
But never have come.
