Discovered this day the truth

Discovered !, this day, the truth .
A night of passion planned for another,
covered up by thick, fluffy clouds of deception,
an innocent impotence, added to make the lies believable.

Your physical beauty and innocence captured and swept me away.
Your “con”vincinging lies, expressed, lead my heart and wisdom astray.
You have taken, of my eager, trusting heart and now !, left it no way.
You have taken and taken, left nothing but, for me to pay and pay.
You have ruled our lives, I have let you for what seems, forever and a day.
You have had no right, there are no reasons, no excuses, it is not Okay.
You are not to blame, I walked in knowing your game, I was not blind.
I know you have a heart ?, I know it is there, it is somewhere ?,
if it where only kind.
You have known me, from deep within, you chose me not, did not care,
you forgot and I will never fill your mind.
You have been running all your life, with that cool image and empty soul.
Your deceitful, lying, heartless heart – oh how well I have come to know.
Your inner being, I believed ( from the top of my heart ), would grow.
You are forgiven, there is nothing more, no were else to go,
 this is all that this old soul is able to do.
Your being, your actions, the truth about who you are, I already knew !  
Your life’s direction, from now on, I hope will not parallel, but travel a new.
