From Real Talk Always by Anthony P. Heard Jr.




Lost so she's blinded by love.
Too young so she's weak-minded to the thug's smooth talking.
His words enter her heart and soul,
penetrating her pores,
coming at her hard like bombs and bullets
from the Iraq War.
His words, so finesse, she stagers,
stumbling, welcoming something new.
But not knowing them before,
she doesn't know they're not true.
Hypnotized by his every word,
when his mouth opened she was
mesmerized by the thought of what may come out.
Before she knows it, it's too late.
She's already taken the bait.
Now he has her taking leaps.
She's in too deep.
The water's no longer shallow.
'cause she's blinded by tomorrow.

Didn't know you had it in you, Heard. Your words honestly touched me. Keep your head up, and keep writing :)
