Walking out

Every dream you promised me

Drew me close, then misery

Your words were seductive don’t you see.
You took my heart and held it safe

I gave my trust, to an inventive knave

My first mistake, I can vouchsafe.
Those carefully crafted  lies of yours

Drew me in, closed other doors

You locked my heart, that gave me pause.
You buried that key, and pulled me low

I was drowning in your undertow

You swore to never let me go.
My will was sapped, your wiles were strong

This warped existence , became life’s song

I need the strength  to right the wrong.
From the dirt ,the key I hold, now I just need,to be bold

Without a doubt, I am walking out, you lost your hold

Your seductive schemes just leave me cold.

Serendipitous soliloquy.

​Serendipitous soliloquy 

Does this tirade scan iambically

I pace the floor while shouting my declaimation 

Trying to rid myself of my consternation

You swore you loved me, You chased and wooed me

I began to trust and became your devotee

How could I become sucked in to this morass

I am feeling such an ass

My ego has nose dived my world has rocked

I am feeling such dismay my system is shocked

This drama is unfolding as I play my scene

Wishing like in Shakespeare the villain could intervene

Or at least eavesdrop on this great soliloquy

Instead of an audience composed of just me

I hope across the ether the echoes resonate

Making you aware of my solitary debate
