Love for the Camera

It’s all a lie that fellow didn’t love you
not one minute into the relationship though
you both agreed to build on love and trust,
none of which he ever had for you.

You’ve been blindly playing the role
of a fictional love character and he’s been
directing the show the entire time
calling all the shots behind the scenes,
from the moment you met him
at love at first sight, he’s been running game.

Your innocence, your vulnerability, your juvenility
broadcast on national television for all to see
—you’ve been so naïve and it shows. Love sometimes
hurts when you want to fall head over heels.
