Charlatan Lovers

https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2019/04/13/weekend-writing-prompt-101-charlatan/

You charlatan lovers

Should expect due fate:

Eternity in Lake of Fire.

Spinning out lines, casting

Net to catch weak hungry

Hearts naïve and not

Deserving of false affection

Lust’s promises…they splinter

Cut trust, leave ugly scars as

Parting gifts.  Adios.

Mystery to me, how you gain

Inflated romantic reputations…

Lotharios, reprehensible 

You’ve nothing of substance

To offer…day or night, Sir.

  1. I’m with you, Ennle, glad there is no temptation to enter into yet another train wreck of a relationship, as passage of time has seen to that. Maybe it’s not wisdom, but rather lack of beauty that makes this lesson available to us.. So well written, your poetry.

    • Hi Violet! For me, it’s definitely lack of beauty that got me out of the way–I seemed immune to wisdom back in the day 🙂 Thank you so much for reading, and your compliments. Blessings to you ❤
