Treat Me Like A Fool No More - Poem by Melvina Germain

I thought you were the answer to my dreams,
but you kept conjuring up ridiculous schemes.
You erased my love as if it was charcoal dust,
leaving me at dawn after a night of pure lust.

My heart was blue with pain,
I know, I must never see you again.
When the telephone rang, I heard your voice.
I tingled inside, once again making the wrong choice.

While waiting in anticipation, my thoughts ran wild,
feeling I was acting like a foolish child.
A myriad of my emotions began to unfold,
while realizing the truth my friends told.

You were a liar and a cheat long before we met.
No feeling of remorse, no sign of regret.
Who am I to be such a fool,
to allow you to demean me and treat me so cruel.

You are lost in yourself with no love to give.
I must distance myself if I truly want to live.
Tonight no love making, I'm saying goodbye,
to a thoughtless, cruel, mean selfish guy.

Note: Just want to let you know, this is my
muse. Where did it come from, I have
no idea. I was writing for a challenge.
