Fooled Again

Fooled Again short poem

Photo by Kris Krug

She passed me by
throwing me the crumbs of a smile,
no sign of the love
she swore would last forever,
some time ago we were kissing
now we’re passing.

I know what she feels like
under jeans and anorak
and I am known to her.
Knowing her kiss
I see us both writhing
reaching for the stars
arriving togetherin sweat-sodden sheets.

I meant what I said
she never did I’m sure,
I fooled myself,
she fooled me.
Her words were honey
down they went
warming me up
on the coldest of days.

We parted,
I’ve given up sugar
now I take my words plain,
“bland but digestable”
She carved me a deep cynical notch
adding to my ever growing collection.
