Just one look

You sat on the couch that night. I was standing, you were looking up at me. I could vividly see the little boy inside the man. It shook me, the childlike wonder in your eyes.

You smiled and I knew I would be in trouble if I stayed. That look had led me down the path before, the one that leads to nowhere.

A brief moment, that's all it took to undo the work I had done. I had hardened my heart to you. I had stayed away. You could offer me nothing but emptiness, I knew it. Why I went back there with you is beyond me.

I swear you took lessons is plucking my heart strings. Oh yeah, I gave them to you, so I should know.

You look up at me like that, THAT same fucking look that you used to use. The one that said everything and meant nothing.

I touched your face, turned and left.

This is spooky, sort of. I ran into the woman formerly known as my significant other yesterday afternoon at Wal-Mart... went through those same emotions. The only difference is that I didn't touch her face, or shake her hand... didn't even speak. When she tried that pouting kind of "hurt" smile and asked: "Can we just talk about this?" that's when I turned and left.

I hope you're alright.

Your words hurt me……

I turned them around and tried to imagine myself the victim of such sly trickery and these words came out

The little girl who lies!!!
Who uses innocence as a lure!
And I then blame myself
for my own transparency

This world confuses
When the woman with the child in her eyes
is only a cunning disguise
And a ruse and a ploy
to trick and to use

and to abuse
the innocence
I now seek to hide

…..and now my own words hurt me

Wow! Amazing. Words have sharp edges be careful how you play with them.

One day you will glance across a room and see that look that says and means everything.

This sounds like the drama everyone refers to that they are trying to avoid. Just not into manipulating or being manipulated. Neither results in pleasure for me.

Manipulation depends on our reaction. No reaction then you are not manipulated.
