Better watch yourself

he’s just playing with you

saying all those words you want to hear

none of them true.


Holy roller, business owner, multimillionaire –

you’ve been on the road of heartbreak

he’s the answer to your prayer.

Philanthropist, romanticist, sex god love affair

he’s everything a man can be

now you’re tangled in his lair.


Then that sickly, nagging feeling:

is he really who he seems?

Is he just an online fantasy

or the answer to your dreams?


Time will tell and things will show

he’s played this game before –

with her and her and her and her

and everyone you know.


Disappointment and resentment;

feelings you know well

still it doesn’t seem to matter

your guard’s a fragile shell.


Letting go and moving on; it isn’t very hard –

the disillusioned disenchantment of a heart already scarred.

Sometimes you still wonder just who he really is

if that even was his name

but if he’s everything he said he was

he wouldn’t play this game.
