Poem: A Cruel Fantasy.

I was standing on my own,

Just minding my business.

But you blocked my path,

You said I was the best thing

Your eyes had witnessed.

_____________________

You spoke quickly.

Your speech matched the speed of Usain Bolt.

And despite myself,

You gave my heart an unexpected jolt.

_____________________

In a moment of weakness,

I lowered my defences,

I broke down long-built fences,

I took leave of my senses.

_____________________

Every word you said to me was heavenly,

I choked down my doubts as you kissed me gently.

I told myself, ‘This has to be love, surely!’

Like Kanye West, no one could tell me nothing.

_____________________

When my brain came back to me,

You had taken off further than my eyes could see,

Your sweet words

About how we were meant to be

Were empty;

A cruel, twisted fantasy.
