Not Tricked

Not Tricked

I've lost myself out here before — my tongue
regurgitated billboards off brick walls.
So do you always pause when trouble calls?
(I thought so.)  Schemes get left unsung
beneath this corner where I've always hung
around as though that's where your lover sprawls.
"I shouldn't," your remorseful hand still falls
into a groove where wrong's forever young.

Not yet, but yet, some local gets the urge
to take his turn at finding out my sign
while you await someone to let you merge
back into traffic other streets combine,
though secretly we know that can't be true
since when he's done with me, I'll still have you.

    Beautiful Maggie,

    You have such an amazing soul and your word reach to me.

    “since when he’s done with me, I’ll still have you.”

    Sometimes, you make me cry.

    Miss D
