Poetry Corner – “Fortress”

“Fortress”

I let you in, I let you
in, let you in, I let you

take over me like I was
easily deceived, had no
control, like you stole
all my common sense
and you, sir, you were
not common, or maybe
you had me fooled

you came with your arms
and strategy, leaving me
to fumble over my defenses
didn’t see it coming
left such a mess when
you stormed the fortress

I let you in, I let you
in, let you in, I let you

lead the way to parts
unknown, had the sway
of novelty, all I knew
was you and me for certainly
or so I perceived in my
haze, a loathed daze
thought that I’d been schooled

you came like a guide,
a fun ride for me, but it’s
too quickly over
wish the future I knew
threw everything askew
when you stormed the fortress

the foundation is crumbling
like a heart stumbling over
the sound of your voice
but it’s not the words that I
want to hear or affection
I hold dear, it’s assault
but who’s to blame?
it’s all my fault because

I let you in, I let you
in, let you in, I let you
I let you in, I let you
in, let you in, I let you
