Lovely Games

Lovely Games

A Poem by E.A. Spain
"

Inspired by a light skinned boy I used to know that left me in the dust.

"

He caused me to fall
He changed my views
He taught me a lesson or two
He showed me what's right isn't always true
And the sky isn't always blue
And then he left me here to rue
He left me here to rue the days
That I spent with him falling in love in different ways
And as I changed I hoped it was just a phase
But now he's gone and I remain the same
And all this destruction around me is for me to blame
It was all foreseen so I have no shame
That I lost at playing his lovely game

Something we can all relate to. Heartbreak. I love your last couple of lines, "It was all foreseen so I have no shame that I lost at playing his lovely game." Gives me the feeling that whatever we do is already determined and it's out of our control.
Might just be me, but I had trouble reading it cleanly for the first time however, your message comes across.

I relate strongly to this one, "It was all foreseen so I have no shame, that I lost at playing his lovely game." This was a very powerful line! And, "he showed me what's right isn't always true." I find it hard to express the feelings of heartbreak, but you did it very well here.
