The fool

Contributed by Frecks on Friday, 21st September 2018 @ 12:28:19 PM in AEST
Topic: toughstuff

It was my fault,
I was the fool,
I let you treat me that way,
I allowed you to be cruel.

I lost myself,
Misplaced who I was,
Gave up my self respect,
I put my life on pause.

Don/'/t blame yourself,
It/'/s all on me,
Yes, you took advantage,
But I should have seen.

Do not come back,
I/'/m strong again,
I found who I am now,
I won/'/t feel more pain.

It was my fault,
I let you in,
I gave you too much,
I let you under my skin.

I doubt after reading this that the author is a fool.
There is good evidence that we can learn when we take responsibility, and that is the message I take from your poem.
Nice rhythm, and very compact, making the poem rich and nourishing to the spirit. Im sure you will enjoy many readers.
Your turn to read and comment on someone elses writing! We all read as well as write, and look forward to your comments.

Yes. It can feel foolish to try our hand at love and quote unquote lose... The real fool is anyone who pretends to be serious when they are not...Fall seven times, stand up eight.
Stay true to yourself.

P.s is your name Carol? Nickname Freckles before? Just curious... If so, welcome back.

Welcome, either way! Keep writing.
