She was a plain girl
Naive and innocent from the country side
Never had her ears heard
A man say “I love you” meant for her.
He has watched her
Go about her business
Not intrigued by his charm
Not a sign of lust for him
He was used to girls running after him
Her innocence pumped every gleam of desire in him
He has to find a way.
A hallo amidst smiles in her presence
A brush of hands on her body
A rub between her
She she wanted to say no
Isn’t sure if she said it loud enough
Then Liam said the words
Said he loved her
She believed him
Fell right into traps she didn’t know
Love in the movies and soap operas fooled her
Hopeless romantic she’d grown out to be
She didn’t know better
Then began her troubles
Her lessons, her compulsory growth.
Today she runs broken
Crazy,shattered and alone
Cold with no warmth ever enough
A single mum after Liam left
Never looked back.
She realizes that wasn’t even his real name
Nothing about him was ever real
Hurt but must survive
Someone else depends on her now.
