Fool’s Game


I let you

break my heart,

you did not catch me

unaware.

I let you take

what you thought

you needed

while I wondered

if you would

ever see

that you cannot steal

from the willing.

I let you lie

unchallenged,

patiently waiting

and hoping

you would finally

feel safe enough

to accept that

I could see you.

I let you cut at me

when the poison

inside you

was a killing thing

you needed to

release,

and in your fury

and frustration when

I remained

immoveable,

you thought me a fool

and now

we both know.

You were.
