How Dare You - Poem by James Casey

How Dare You

How dare you make me doubt that love exists!
I was never meant to be as jaded as this.

When you blind sided me to a shattering truth?
Tell me was it fun for you or was it just my youth?


But, wasn't it you, who demanded nothing less than complete honesty,
When you, never gave it to me in return on that can we at least agree?

How am I supposed to react?
Very little that you said was actual fact.

Did I get angry and cause a scene?
Do I block it all out, as if a bad dream?

Tell me, your reaction, if the situations were reversed,
What's worse, all this seemed so damn rehearsed

How would you handle this betrayal of trust?
I know exactly what your feelings would be, callous

So tell me, why can't I treat you with the same disregard?
Then explain why coming to terms has to be so HARD
