The Fool

I didn't see you watching
As I made myself the fool
Irreversible damage
I'm no longer cool

I wanted your approval
This was my biggest mistake
Because of what I have done
You must think I'm fake

If only I could undo
Then perhaps you would be mine
I just gave up everything 
To have a good time



Sorry, I couldn't resist rhyming the last lines.

    Richard This is creative and interesting. The reader is taken in and tries to figure out what you did to be so foolish. Hey, next time let me get involved. I love to be crazy. LOL hugs

    I can never resist rhyming either haha, I have tried to do a free verse and I always end up rhyming! This is great Rick, it'd be nice if we could undo mistakes,but then we couldnt learn from them!

    i like the way you went ahead with the ending rhyme. LOL. Richard, I wish I knew what you got caught up in. Some desires are uncontrollable. does not mean one does not love. ~Luv*SKAT

    Enjoyed this one, Richard...Light with a hint of seriousness.. I don't know too much about the rules of writing a Dodoitsu, but the rhyming is not strict so it's fine! Always, Annalise
