The Deal

by Erika Burt

Is, His "I love yous"
Were IOUs
Or blank endorsements
Exchanged for resentments
'Cause he saw the cutie
As a hot commodity
That would make his stay
Sweet, but no less short, and in that day
The changes of his life
Came to bite and left her with gripes
(...its common when
a sampler leaves now and then...)
As he emerged on another treat
And her heart had to retreat
Unless from heart ache she'd die
At least on the inside
High treason was blocked and cancelled
Cause a "heads up" dismantled
(Thanks girl!)
All the secret game of the spinning will
Lying exposed prevented the closing of this deal
