Heartache and Headache [REVISED]


Wasn’t going to give in to feelings but my body did, heartache and
headache of self-reproach; should’ve realised it impossible to fall
in love in the blink of an eye, should not have supplied my advice
without knowing exactly what was going on, should have asked

Who took the lead on learning she’d demanded commitment as
soon as she came to visit, insisted on marriage within a week -
a pre-determined plan, warned him this she-devil was a freak; no
time to get to know him, no time to build a friendship

Only pressure by a woman suffering need of protection, playing
that role to perfection; warned him no marriage based on strange
and unknown is realistic, I’d thought it an old love rekindled while
the fiendish she-devil engaged in a con - swindling him as soon as

Debts were paid, coldly telling her benefactor he’s not good enough
after 6 months constant complaints; stupid to leave him to his own
devices when he needed guidance, we both have low emotional
intelligence, that’s clear, if only the con can be recognised in court

Forcing the swindler to deal with consequences of her atrocious
behaviour, losing money she swindled, bringing him closure and
making up for the times I did not warn him against this parasite

am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
