I See You Breaking
Another Heart.

Mind games.
Insecure people
in love games.
Why bother if you don’t care.
Makes you feel macho,
to make someone else
feel small…
that’s what I think.
I see you breaking
another heart.

Why bother to tell
someone you’d love them
if they’d only “change” and
be someone else…
…its not you, you say…
if only they’d be different.
They you wouldn’t stray.
Like I believe that one,
but you’re not talking to me
and those in love want to
please and try to become
someone they aren’t.
Then you tell them,
you aren’t the person
I “fell in love with”.


It hurts so see someone
at the mercy of a parasite…
life sucking parasite.
You make someone sad,
and thinking “if only I could…”
leave them crying,
go your merry way,

and never looking back.
They suffer while you’re
off having fun

and then you return,
like they should be happy
you’re back to “help” them
be better so you’ll
stay this time.

Mind games.
Insecure people games,
preying on the vulnerable.
Think you’re  so macho.
Just a parasite...
That’s the way I see it ,
Good thing it’s not me,
or you’d be dust.
That isn’t a fee hotel for
macho lovers.
I see you breaking
another heart.
Mind games.
I see through your mind games.
Piddly little mind games…
bully games is what I call them.
Too bad the “victims” …
for that’s what they are,
can’t see through your
using lovers like pawns
in a chess game.
Mind games.
Been there.
Sucked in to them.
Wish I’d had the 20/20 mirror
when I was younger mirror.
Bully. That’s what you are.
The mold wasn’t broken
and history repeats itself
with another generation
of lovers who buy into
Mind games,
convincing others they are
“in love” games.
I SEE YOU breaking
another heart.
Using a prompt from Inspiration Monday.


People Watching
Reading faces is difficult when you come from
the land of “put on a happy face”
“you never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
It’s also the land of “never let them see you sweat.”
Reading faces in a  world that is,
“why bother” and more interesting to watch.
I grew up with never go out in public without your make up on
or curlers in your hair….
does anyone ever use curlers any more?
It wasn’t as interesting as in the land
of “anything goes”.
Every day was “dress up” and always seen at your “best.”
No wonder marriages started to crumble after the
vows were said,
the first sight without make up had to have been a jolt.
First impressions didn’t last,
and finally the make up could come off…
and hair before the curlers set,
could scare a crow out of their nest.
Reading faces, at the mall,
sitting at a red light or waiting in the doctors office.
Did you ever notice that some people think,
the windows in their cars are “one way”
…they can see out and no one can see in?
Thank George Carlin for this one: They “pick their noses”
and “scratch where it itches,” thinking no one  sees.
People let their hair down anywhere these days…
you can tell who’s angry or in love,
or maybe flirting, if they get off the phone long enough!
Reading faces,
Did they just loose their best friend,
or is their nail polish the wrong color?
Did they just win megabucks, their ship just come in,
or beat everyone to get their call in first
to get the free tickets to hear their favorite band?
Reading faces is still fun.
A documentary, reality show  in real life.
You get to guess and surmise
and make up your own drama and story line
while passing the time of day…
‘who’s just putting on a happy face”
or trying to make a first impression count.?
Reading faces of a group of guys and gals,
who’s with whom, who thinks they’re with someone
but get a surprise?
Who thinks they can “pull this one off”
but you can tell they are “starting to sweat?”
Sitting in the shadows and watching the
drama play out…
what’s more fun than
reading faces !
