Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


15 March 2014



I should have checked the windows, doors,

made sure they were secure,

it only takes a moment for

intrusions to occur.


I’ve let my guard down once or twice,

been hurt a time or two,

if I’d listened to my own advice,

I’d never let them through.


But I forget, grow weak sometimes,

still wanting to believe,

let down my guard to those outside,

too easily deceived.


Deceitful is the heart of man,

or so it has been said,

perhaps I may yet understand,

my heart’s just in my head.
