Deceptive Lover

I read your lover’s poetry,
And saw his deceptive way.
He manipulated your emotions,
Which makes me angry I must say.

He promised to come and meet you,
He promised you everlasting love.
Then told you about another,
Must have felt like a slap with an iron glove.

I feel your pain of love loss,
I hear you silent  cries.
As you longed to be held,
Here he stands on your heart until it dies.

I know it will be hard to trust 
I know you fear loves pain
My arms are open my sweet
In a hope you feel loves warmth again

    Such difficult words to read Sid. Lost love is always sad and you made it even more so. If anything, you did a great write as the emotion is all there. P S Is that you in the picture? Not at all as I pictured you! ha ha
