Charmed by You

Charmed by You

A Poem by Laconic Meraki

Why did you choose to charm her if your intentions were to harm her?
Loving you made her blind to the signs.
And your heartless crimes.

Burning steady and sturdy bridges.
Stabbing her heart,leaving deep incisions.
Now her canvas is covered in scars.

She ignored everyone's heartfelt desperate warnings.
As a result you left her mind ,body and soul storming.

Charmed , Charmed by you.
Everlastingly marked.
You were her muse.

This is gut wrenching. I've been there. All of us have. But some are cruel about it. That's not right. You did well capturing this.

It's not a good feeling. Very confusing. And hurtful.
Boy was this woman betrayed, over and over. Why didn't she leave the so-called one-sided relationship? The words flow and strong, intended to really capture the scene. I really like the line>>"now her canvas is covered in scars..." Well done!

Yes. Its a battle within. Your heart , mind, body and soul.
Love is blind.
You see what your eyes want to see (Madonna quote?)
Lots of clichés, and wise sayings give voice to the same lesson your speaker seemed to have had to learn the hard way. I can certainly relate.

I didn't know that quote by Madonna but I do now. Thanks for that. Weird how things like that happen.. read more
Your poem reminds me of the various times thru-out the years when 2 poets at the cafe become infatuated, each being a muse for the other, posting poems they believe are subtle or symbolic, but are actually blaring signs that there's something flaming betw the 2. And we all watch for the inevitable crash, which can often show up as nasty-grams disguised as poems. Sorry I got off on that. Your poem is very provocative! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Hmmm.. Love to hear more about it.
Sometimes it seems we can be charmed by being their plaything, for a while. But what then? They grow bored and move on to a new game or we play to their beat. Been there, done it and now play to my own beat, where I only let nice people play now. There'll be one along any minute. I'm sure of it.
Or maybe it's just safer to play solitaire and know you'll rarely win but never lose 😀

This really sounds like someone was backstabbed or betrayed by someone they held dearly. I particularly loved the line "Burning steady and sturdy bridges", as it implies that they were very close and the trust and bond was broken. Very beautiful and very emotional!

... Your words suggest a deep and unexpected hurt .. caused by another in whom you placed much trust .. either that, or you have been here before .... well penned my friend :)
