Don’t Let Them Take It From You

Life is cruel,
But love is more,
We get our feet wet, then are trapped behind closed doors,

We open our eyes only to find that those we cared about all this time lied to us,
We tried so hard to make things right, to change ourselves, to find the light,
But we were in denial, we lied to make ourselves feel better,
He didn’t care about you or what you could do,
He didn’t love you when he said he did, but he sure enjoyed you,

That one night when you were alone, he called you up on the phone,
He said, “Hey baby, I miss you. Let me hold you in my arms and let me kiss you.”
You gave in and held him tight,
You had cold feet, but your heart was warm and it felt so right,
He came over and pinned you down,
You gave him your trust and in lust he let you drown.
Then he disappeared, and your heart was still in it, but your nightmares interferred,
The game was over and you knew you couldn’t win it,
Gruesome and opaque, images of him would remind you of all of your mistakes,
Young and naive, you sit there and grieve, rotting in your own heartbroken hall,
This boy was a mistake and you let him take it all.



About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
