It all started that summer night,
Dazzled and dazed from the first sight.
I shook my head and looked away
But he held me tight and asked me to stay.
His words were a delusion,
And I was sucked into his beautiful illusion.
We were committing the perfect crime.
I stole his heart and he stole mine.
Talking all day and night
Must make us closer, right?
But, the inevitable truth hit hard
When he left me, I was scared.
It was all just a game.
Another way to entertain,
The cruel crowd that he obeys;
Another sick trick he plays.
Blinded I was of what he truly is.
I fell deep in that trap of his.
Oblivious to what I might feel,
Finding out his love wasn’t real.
Aphrodite’s beauty is attraction,
And his charm was a distraction.
To his Herme’s trickery
He will always be a mystery.
Recovering and despaired
I grew and never really cared.
Up until my eyes set to see
He was with someone else, not me.
