Too blinded by love
I couldn’t see through your lies
Always acted like a love-struck puppy around you
Talked your ears off
About my dreams and future
Hoping you’d share the same excitement with me
Yet, I looked past that
Because of how deep I was in the ocean of our love.
I didn’t see the shark coming.
Blinded by our love, I didn’t hear the snake hissing
Hand in hand we walked to a beautiful castle,
With a red carpet at the threshold.
I felt like royalty
A queen with a loving king by her side.
With one hand
You reached into your pocket.
My heart skipped a beat or two,
Tears glistened my eyes.
You held up the Pandora’s box,
I screamed with joy like a banshee
When my eyes beheld the glorious beauty that was to be my ring.
But you pulled the trigger when you asked,
“you think she’ll love it?”
