Foolish Pt. 2

(Cont’d)…I couldn’t have had you in any other way that would have branded my mind so tragically; you seared my heart like a piece of meat and cut me till I was tender.
I could never have envisioned then that you’d be rid of me so quickly. A fox scratching its velvet ear, removing a tick and sauntering into the field for some chase or prey.  I never saw it coming- you must have.
Foolish LoveI suppose, I never see anything coming. All I saw was you and I was spellbound, ensorcelled by your careless flaunt and casual breath. Whatever, it didn’t matter and it still doesn’t. If I was brave enough or perhaps cognizant of your inner, lattice lace of beautiful and conflicting thoughts, I still would never have delved. I admired but should have studied the webs of an already spun tapestry. The loom of fate is daunting and not for myself to understand. I had a moment, a precious moment with you that I never once scrutinized nor should have. It was lightning in a bottle that any rational being would have scrambled for and stoned dead any sane thought they may have had when you, a crackling blue arc cracked across a static, summer sky. Now, like smoke from a fire and dust in your palm here comes a strong breeze and there goes whatever you never had.
You had me. You had me wholly and unadulterated and I faltered and exposed a soft underbelly that you bit into and drained the blood from when you left.  Your fangs were like brilliant baubles of flashing brilliance, sheened by saliva and poised for a thrill. And I knew that it was you who I wanted and It was you who I aimed all my charm. Remembering that time when I first saw you walk up to the porch. I called you over and asked if you’d like to play. Your lips parted and you brushed your hair to the side with an elegant white hand.
Yes.”
It didn’t matter whether I knew to play the game or not, there were others to show me. You told me that you weren’t familiar with it either. How little I knew. It takes heartbreak to know heartbreak…
Your love, your justice, your discretion, you and all of this it was flesh and blooded ruby lips that commanded me- in all of that, in all of that you possessed never once did I think to have been left here like this...
