One Fell Swoop
She confides in an older man.
Sweet words and warm hands soothe
A lost heart that's been abused

One Small Lie is all it took..

A gentle smile
and a friendly look.
And he took her like a thief

Digging in the hooks.
Author's Notes:

"because you were sweet. and i was lonely."

Everyone I love is broken and stolen.

I would never do you wrong

I would never do you wrong

I would never do you wrong like that.

It's a sad lie.

"He was my world and I was his target"

i really like this, you've managed to create an entire, powerful scene with a few strong lines...creating emotion, relationships, needs, desires, brokenness, etc.  there is a great flow through this through its subtle rhymes, which makes the powerful ending wrap up perfectly.
nicely done.

My Gosh, this was powerfully simple and honest.  It was hard to read because it made me feel so vulnerable, like you had written it just for me.  Great job!  Now get out of my head.

A really clever poem. Its tone calm yet it content....threatening.


I enjoyed it very much
