What a fool I am.
Letting him in to start.
Looking past all warning signs,
And playing the game
Like a blindfolded kid with a bat
It was the eyes, I tell myself.
But I'm lying again.
It was more than that.
I heard love reders the heart sightless.
I believe it.
He was every inch a cowboy.
I thought that's what I wanted.
I still might, not the same old
Heart smasher though.
He's long gone.
Yet from the hat to the boots,
I was reminded of King George.
They stand about the same, anyways.
Silly me, seein' something that
Peering from beneath a wide,
Beige colored brim,
I saw chocolate brown.
The melt in your mouth sort.
I always wanted to climb in,
And not come out.
When I could see clearly,
I saw green fields and blooming
Flowers. Gold, blue, and earth brown.
My safe haven.
But here I am, no security left.
I didn't see the gap between
His first two teeth as a flaw.
"Adds character," I'd say.
He never would believe me.
I wasn't important enough.
He won't believe me now.
Five long years I wasted, waiting.
All for nothing. That'll teach me.
Don't open your heart.
"Love" is a word it can't comprehend.
