You filthy misleading desire
Appearing to be a resolution to my struggles.
Greeting my need for importance with sneaky tricks
All leading me to ruin.
Whore I flirt with
Trap I fall into on purpose
Shame is the game.
Just when I feel okay
You make me withdraw as I climb
To remind me you’re not the way.
Give me a glimpse of being rescued
Then drop me back into helplessness.
Suck me dry for the hour
Then refuse to kiss me next time
Rip my hopes in soiled pieces.
You’re a liar
Filthy image meant to lure me into sorrow.
But you are a reflection of my wrong turns
Projection of my ignorance.
I spew angry sayings to express my annoyance
You smile hoping I’ll be back for more.
Feeding my need to feel important
