The distance you crossed with your pen,
word by word, line by line.
you only ever saw in me
a paper concubine
In despair you lifted me up,
healing words of solace
one moment you would comfort me
then you would just transgress
Ghost friend that never existed.
things felt strangely amiss.
actions don’t meet the words you said.
you blew a fatal kiss
Your prowess with the written word,
can’t match your cunning tongue
your nose pointed up in the air
you are a charlatan.
Flummery you speak to lost girls,
you saw me as a whore,
a dullard, just leagues beneath you
a girl you could abhor.
Mirrored flaws, becoming each one.
so I’d feel empathy,
then you’d slink into the shadows
Gather your gold pieces in hand
pleasure reading my pain.
so unless I am mistaken
don’t, come back again.
