Inducement

As a blue-eyed young lad

I believed in youthful stories

They were lifelines to my soul

Beyond the mere metaphoric

So- I followed a yellow brick road

Only to discover it was pyrite

Breaking my will’s inner spirit

So- I sought out true love instead

And found a brown-eyed girl

That broke up my poor heart

Leaving me lost and alone

When you love from the soul

We become beset to those we love

Even if they love us… not
