Evita Mater

At First Look - Poem by Evita Mater

at first look you seemed to be my escape
from lies, pain, hurt, and hate
who could know you cause harm
when you hide your true self with charm
i thought we were great friends
even if our path had many bends
you led my to belive in you
all the while forgeting i had feelings to
i thought you were nice
boy, did i pay the price
if i could go back,
i would reconize how you act
dont you understand?
you turned my heart tough, worn, and tanned
so goodbye forever
forgive you? never.

if only i saw
what you truely are
at first look
