A Fool Was I

A Fool Was I

written by: Anne G



A fool was I

to question why

reply denied

unmasked – the lie

I choked then cried


with shame

a mortal wound

I died a little bit

that day

the words you spewed

cut to the quick

I flinched and bristled

with regret

loathing  filled

my every pore

I gathered up

my injured pride

denouncing you

denouncing love
