Fool's Game

 Want to hold you in my arms
 Can't resist your charms
 But this love doesn't seem right
 As I lay on my pillow tonight

I hold you body and soul
Desire running wild you know
This girls heart is on fire
While you became the liar

Wanted to hold you in my arms
Wanted to feel your many charms
But heard you found someone new
Now what am I supposed to do

I hoped it wasn't over yet
Lost my heart on this bet
Now you have moved away
Only left with dreams of dismay

Your memories will haunt me
Our love was not meant to be
Now comes heartache and loss
Nothing left for the both of us

We played a fools game
With each other to blame
We let each other down
Now we are no longer bound.

    Summer love only last as long as three vacation. But hope lives in the back seat of a car. We go where life carries us. Even if hubby is so far.

    HI again. Wish I had the time to try and see if there are oldies of yours I never read yet. I honestly believe I have seen every one of your poems. Thanks for visiting mine, Phyllis and hope you have a great week!

    Could be a country song!! they have many about this topic. Nicely done, and what inspired you to do one like this, sweetie? Hmmm, so Mystic Rose could be Vie? I will have to remember that when I see her poems!!! If Vie's name is now gone, I bet you right!!
