Love Poem #1

by Anthony Lewis

One hypnotic eye. 
my voodoo woman. 
a love story in black and black.

seduced/reduced by a 
fantasy i lived & believed.
i was your "yes mame!" man.
deceit was your art form.

i ran interference to:
defer constant contradictions,
habitual lies, and the
reality that was you.

betrayal is premeditated.
selfish motives
selfish rewards
                        (and me?)
love is not Eternal!
just more religious

Worship is a sin.
