Feel Stupid for Being Naive

Being naive
To trust your initial words
Destroy my trusting hearts
My heart is dead
Whenever you repeat your mum’s words
Like a parrot

The way you play with my naiveness
I feel dejected whenever I remember
You seek me during courtship
Dazzle my eyes
With garland of flowers

Yet now you are different
All you care is yourself
Instead of investigating the truth
You sell yourself to lies

Living in someone’s influence
Third parties’ views are right
The fool is me for not believing them
My heart is dead
Thanks to you.

This is the third sequel to Why Do You? and If Not For Jesus poetry. Lori Carlson’s writing prompt challenge my heart and mind to birth this poetry. My heartbreak journey is stated clearly in my first poetry. The final line signify my sarcastic remarks to my blinded husband until my tears almost dry up. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

  1. There is such sadness in this poem.. I feel every emotion! Beautifully penned Yoshiko! So glad my words today inspired this piece.

  2. Yoshiko what poignant words even if the subject is one of such misery that no one should have to suffer through. Hold up your head and try to live again proudly.You are a beautiful person and don’t deserve such abuse. ❤

  3. Wow, honestly written Yoshiko. I like the image created by the line “Dazzle my eyes
    With garland of flowers” – I like the way it creates for me, an image of something of beauty and also a trophy. Thanks for sharing.

  4. sorry to know that you had to go through this! some mother in laws are toxic (its the other way round too). They really make the taunts true that two women cant live peacefully under the same roof, no matter how hard one of them tries!

  5. we’re all naive and stupid, one day or another… no problemo, Yoshiko-san, welcome to the club! 🙂 my very best, take care and be careful, cheers! Mélanie
