Hoodwink

who are you to have the world so fooled

buying into your lies

damn the disguise

you wear it so well a real cool veil

no one even bothers to stop

and take a closer look

your smile so serene

in your hand you bleed the blood

of those you've

fooled, tricked, bamboozled

who are you to have the world so fooled

the universe rocks with your deception

the words you speak are super sleek and slimy

and damn grimy and

yet you get away with

stepping on feelings wrapping your lies

so skillful in honey

the image portrayed have those believing you're a god

when you're a fraud

the truth will be revealed and you'll be left

standing in an empty field surrounded

by those you hurt ready to give back justice

well deserved

I wouln't want to get on your bad side. I found your writing to be honest, straight forward and creative. I liked it very much. It echos what you feel when someone has done you wrong.
