Poem: The Player

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

Poem Summary

The player is a poem about a man who uses his actions and words to gain her trust. Then he flip flops changing his mind for he wants to play games. She can feel his disconnection in his fake embrace. He has no empathy as he weaves his deceptive web of lies.

"The Player"

His words and actions

fool her heart,

to gain her trust.


He flip flops

like a dead fish out of water,

leaving poison daggers.


With no empathy,

like a child playing a game,

weaving a deceptive web.


Her heart is left bleeding,

feeling the disconnection

of his fake embrace.
