With superficial charm he did me woo
Fell for it without any clue
What struck me I never knew
My eyes opened after the issue
To save myself I couldn’t undo

Some people have all the charm. When it suits them, they turn on their charm to get their way just like the politicians who want your vote — all smiles — no butter will melt in their slimy mouths. At other times, when it’s not to their advantage, they turn distant.
Once I recognize such people, my advice is, “when you know a person’s true colors, don’t be taken in, and keep your distance”.
I believe in it, but what actually happens I am duped again. When that person tries to be sweet to me, my resolve weakens, I doubt myself —– what if I am mistaken? Maybe I got it wrong. I am being too suspicious? I shouldn’t be. Why can’t I be charitable, and believe that the said person has turned a new leaf.
Turning a new leaf? My foot! In real life it’s impossible —– can never be.
