Foolishness I Did Commit

Poem by John Sensele

Overnight, it dawned on me
So much worth I refused to see
In the love she supplied in full
While I was busy playing the fool
Tinkering with every curve in town
So silly to treasure becoming the clown
That like the proverbial swine
Tore up the heart that was mine
Cos pride pruned my perspective
No courage, no clout to meet the objective
Love set for us
While we cruised on the bliss bus
Riding from vagaries of adolescence
To turpitudes of obsolence
I inflicted on the love
I once claimed descended from above
But it's now history
She won't entertain my folly
Opting for good measure
To reap from my rival the pleasure
I couldn't supply
When I could comply
Too late now
I'm no longer a sacred cow
Just ascumbag
With a reject tag
I hate to admit
Sorry, foolishness I did commit.
