confused { revisiting 2010 }

i’m confused
but it’s plain to see
you’re light years

ahead of me
in this game you play
i feel naked now    …exposed
after telling you
such intimate things
::
my naiveté must amuse you
sophisticated
man of the world
with something no one else has
used to women who fall hard for you
giving
you whatever you ask
only to be discarded
once
the conquest is made
::
i wanted more than just sex
but much less than love…

is that what happened?
did you see last night?
naive though i may be
at least
it was only lust
…never love…
for me

  1. i wonder if she is just trying to make herself feel better in the end…it hurts no matter what when expectations are not met…probably a good thing to talk about early on….
