fool me once

I was obsessed, with friendship

I laid the foundation of my life, around it

Joy was continually aboard with me, even in township

I was always appeased, by its ever increasing heat


Then at once, it seemed the clock stopped ticking

When there occurred a change in place

Ever since, I suffered from heart ache

And an encroaching solitude


I put up a fight fate, for pulling down my foundations

But a loner like me, couldn’t win

My opponent vehemently says, it’s for the greater good

And this time, he swore I wasn’t fooled


Struggling with thoughts, of past fun fare

 I realized, I had befriended myself

As none I was warring for, was doing same

The downpour of my tears, was unending

I braced myself, with all courage

I admitted, that fate was being truthful

As I had only being fooled, once

And surely, it’s will be the last.
