many sides to Rosey

16,246 poems read


At the first sight,



With all your tattoos,



Your sly smile, your piercing eyes,



You managed to fool us



 



You acted like you understood,



Shared your stories, gave us gifts



A sweet friendship was being developed,



You managed to fool us



 



Out of the blue, you accused me of something ugly,



Threw it on me via text, and refused to discuss in person



Like a wise, civilized adult we were supposed to be



You managed to fool us



 



Gossip brewed at our workplace, and spread,



Especially the text messages you decided to share



Which did not reflect the whole situation



You managed to fool us



 



People started picking sides,



Especially those on yours, which was still small



Is this elementary school all over again, I wonder



You managed to fool us



 



Whatever the outcome of this may be,



What I do know is that 



You no longer are in my vocabulary, for



You may fool everyone else, but not me
