I believed your words
Like a lovesick fool
Such a naïve girl
Taken in too easily
But it took little time
For you to slip up and
Reveal your true self
The talented liar.
You begged but
You’d already lost
Excuses weren’t enough
You couldn’t charm your way out
Not this time.
And never again.
I quit.

rejected.This is another poem I wrote but rejected during the a-to-z challenge.
Like my last poem, this is not a reflection of my current life. Just a poem about being blindly sucked in and knowing when it’s time to get the hell out! 

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. Glad this is not your current life. But boy, I think we’ve all felt that at one time or another.

  2. Another good poem. It must’ve been hard to pick which ones to use during the challenge! I’m glad this isn’t your current life too! 😅

  3. No matter how sad or difficult, ending will need to new beginnings. And there we can start new wonderful adventures.

  5. Love it. Everything we write has a little bit of ourselves, I think, but then there’s fiction too! Otherwise we’d be reading your diary!

    Great words as usual Sandra, real or not, you have a way of making us all feel we can relate to you.
