213 (who?)
He deceived me, just like everyone else, asking me
Ever so patiently to open up to him and share
All my haunting thoughts, those that keep me awake.
Racking sobs erupting from my trembling lips,
Tossing and turning all night, so I do as he asks,
Bearing my soul to him, letting him see my feelings,
Revealing parts of me no one else knew,
Extracting painful memories and entrusting secrets
All the while, he leads me on.  I really should have
Known, should have known he would betray me.
This has the same sort of setup as my other poetry, with the word down the left side being heartbreak.

hey, my girlfriend just broke up with me and blamed it all on me.
she says i did just that, lead her on and manipulate her, but i did nothing wrong...
she broke up with me for the fun of it, planned a double date before breaking up as well...

we we're meant to have a proper longlasting relationship...

what went wrong?
but not a lot of guys lea you on and betray you...

Oh, do I know this feeling - just got hurt by the same guy twice, and the second time I KNEW he was going to hurt me, but I still kept going like an idiot.
