Fooled Again

30 poems in 30 days — day one

Why do I fall for your tricks
over and over again?
If these decades with you
have taught me anything
it should be
what a fool I’ve been —
Yet, this would strip me
of youthful innocence —
to trust unconditionally
to believe in goodness
to know being jaded
or nihilistic
doesn’t resonate
with my empathic soul
