Blaring lights signaled me all along

Ignored a chain of beacons

Too focus on my lightheartedness

Never had a suspicion


My friend’s duplicity,

overcast with the shadows of her saccharine words

Even worn a thin smile

And veiled eyes I did not see


I have loved her so dearly

Devastated I was from her duplicity

How could someone not held dear my truthfulness

Her demeanor Puzzled me more


My trusting heart shattered into a million pieces

It has been a lesson again

I must be quick-sighted as a cat next time

Not to undermine what my gut feeling says
