Poem: Deceitful Love

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Cold Hearted" by Paula Abdul

Deceitful Love

He lures her in
with those magic eyes,
his tender-loving ways,
telling others she is his gal,
awe, the flattery and praise.

Texting her for hours
more than anyone before,
rushing home from work,
anxious like a school boy with desires
making her feel like a princess.

Playing each card in his unique style
hoping to trap her in his web,
convincing her of his ultimate love
believing his words are true,
trusting he wants only her.

A faithful and loyal woman
tending to his needs,
accepting the role of housekeeper,
cook and everything in between,
leaving him responsible
only to go to work.

Where his wandering eye moves freely,
his fingers text others
while claiming to be too busy
to send her a message,
leaving her clueless of his deceptive game.

Where he is cold hearted
caring only for himself,
seeking pleasure with fantasies
hoping to make them real,
with no worry of being faithful
since she doesn't know.
