My attempt at poetry, please…enjoy.
My heart was stolen in broad daylight by a masked stranger
He came hailing with words of praise and adoration
Empty flattery that had me thinking twice in admiration
It has been a long while after all. I couldn’t wait any longer
I didn’t fall because I was in love,
I fell because I was tired of being a white dove
Oohs and ahhs but nobody by my side
I let out a sigh. I would wave lonely night’s goodbye
I let go, hoping you would catch me in time
Before I hit the ground or fell to pieces
I was too blind to see that I was falling alone
But I was safe, heart never broke just disappeared
You caught me by surprise, on cue on the rebound.
I allowed You charm your way into my heart and my bed
to steal away treasures reserved for the one
In hope-built fantasies I was investing.
Had I known you were the collector
And I was next on your to-do list.
I was just a project to keep you in business
Tears, screams, threats all I got back was air
Once in a pink moon, a strange male catches my eye
Holds it long enough to make me nervous and smile
But my heartbeat is gone, so I feel nothing
No beat or heat, no skip or trip. Nothing
I was robbed of my heart
Boy was he smart
Said it was for insurance
Will I ever find it? There’s no assurance
