I liked myself more
before I met people like you
chasing me with sweet words
which tug on this vulnerable string
pulling down the curtain I’ve made
until you can see everything
in its rawest existence
I’ve been hiding for so long
you passionately take a hold of me
and toss me around in your blinded delight
of winning another game
the man who can have anything
he desires within his selfish ego
before throwing me aside
when I’ve served a momentary purpose
when will you realise
you are playing with the female heart
one which longs to love and nurture
and not be meddled with in the hands
of a reckless man.
