Straw Man

Straw-Man_01
The days we spent in jail
Confined in separate cells
Only cemented our love
So we told the judge
I had to reinvent the world
To accommodate your lies
You kicked me where it hurts
But I came back for more
Your promises had broken wings
They never left the ground
Your nicotine stained eyes
Have obscured your face
You’re a straw man
A conscience for sale
The knife in my back
Attests to your betrayal
The old man said
“Never trust the stupid”
I thought that he meant me
But you were the Judas 
I was too blind to see
