Cardboard Prince Charming

“ But after a single blink, the evilness in his soul shined through. … Tension filled the air, the warning deep in my heart. “ - Penelope Sky

Lingering in a cemetery of recollections
Pausing to examine each memory individually
Attempting to understand
How I could have been fooled
How I could have welcomed blindness

Mysteries left to solve
Questions to pursue
Wounds that refuse to be left alone to heal
A plethora of reasons and excuses preventing me from letting go

Tricked and charmed by the cardboard person I thought you were
Mistakingly giving you everything which left a hole
A hollowness I foolishly expected you, my cardboard Prince Charming, to fill

Focused on caring and valuing you above myself
Thinking you followed the golden rule as I do
All in an attempt to prove that I”m good enough
Accidently giving you a weapon to wound me deeply

Trusting is a fear so cruel and isolating
Trust  a vulnerable aspect I  foolishly thought connected us
But it was a lie that hid a trap
A lie that silenced my questions
A lie hiding deceit and betrayal
A lie concealing that the special connection I believed we had,
was a connection built on sickness and rot

It was a cage I walked into with trust and gratitude
Leaving me right where you wanted

Empty  affection from a cardboard lover  keeping me continuing my
Vulnerable trust to someone I never knew
Shattering my world the moment the evil true you stepped from behind your cardboard mask

That heavy tense sickening moment that killed my family… that killed us
And that agony is what you got off on

Nothing but tricks and deceit
Playing twisted games with my mind and emotions
Enjoying my anguish like an evil monster
Laughing at the rage and termoil inside your latest target

My cardboard Prince Charming killed us
Leaving me to pursue a cemetery of fables and recollections that have been tainted forever
