Him, A Response To Her, A Poem By Julien Bogner - Poem by Jennifer Chretien

He came to me with what he claimed was love,
He fooled me spectacularly with his words.
In his eyes I was perfect, the answer, his happiness.
And blindly, I accepted the lies and believed every one.

But that love from his lips was worth nothing.
The lies reveal their truths.
I watch helplessly as the love and hope and happiness
Metamorphose into lies, deception and pain.

My heart is exposed and the lies slice into it like knives,
The pain of heart break is always fresh, no matter how often you have known it.
I frantically search for the love once claimed,
And find only crumbling fragments of words carelessly spoken.

Oh Lord, why did I believe those words?
Why did I choose to see only the picture his words painted?
Everything I was and all I did amazed him,
But in the end, I wasn’t enough.

I fall down in pain.
The lies won the game.
Love, again, has fooled me
And sleep will not come.


She comes to me with what seems to be love
She fools my eyes to think that i am perfect
Filling my heart with hope, and love
leading me into blind happiness

But that love from her heart turns into a beast
Its no longer love, hope and happiness
But lies, deception, and pain that comes along
This beast is out to hurt me

The beast first strikes my heart
Knowing that i've been hurt once before
It then strikes, that love i had
and leaves me on the ground to bleed

Oh, Lord, why has this animal attacked me
why have i become this victim of its destruction
I tried everything to make sure that beast wouldn't come
But my best just wasn't enough

So, as i lay down to in pain
The knife has won the game
Love has no room for me
as i lay down, and sleep)
