Foolishly Enticed

Foolishly Enticed

Whereas your plot did draw me in, 
yes you, but perhaps not you alone.
That inviting open widow 
that I was pulled through wore sparkling glass
with heart’s desired
worded sash. 

Whereas that I, now too late, do clearly see 
that it was I who became a foolish moth.
Drawn toward 
an open window my heart did wished to see
with a porch light 
that wasn’t lit for me.

Therefore I share pain’s lesson, 
reclaim my heart, and learn from this.
Cocooning, again, 
until a new porch light is lit.
Open windowed wary... as not all panes 
wear true love’s tint.
