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

Can Never Be


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.
