Are You Happy Now?

Are you happy now ..



Well, are you happy now?

You had me where you wanted

Like a fool, I followed

As you led me onto the limb

No one would get hurt, you told me


So farther and farther I went

Daring to take that risk and leap

Then you left me on my own

Without another word to me

You went back the way that you came

Leaving me there to fall

So are you happy now?

You know, I would have been there

You could’ve had my love

And though I do not have a lot

I would’ve loved with all I had

You would never doubt that I cared

For all the little things I’d do. . .

But since you just let me go

That’s something you will never know

Still, I hope you don’t find someone

That leads you to a fall

    I love this poem, Shannon. Some people lead you into dangerous situations or trouble and then leave you stranded. This expresses that very well.

      Yes, John. Some people are like that intentionally. Others learn from it only when it happens to them. I suppose this poem can be representative of several situations in life.

    Being lead onto a limb, with a likely crashing in the fall from it, is devastating. I’ve been there Shannon, stranded is not a good feeling at all. We put our trust, faith and hope in a person we love and if betrayed we take it hard, often the fall is critical and can lead us to reevaluate our own lives of putting all our trust in a person. Well written, nicely expressed in verse.

      Thanks. The fall certainly makes a person re-evaluate a lot of things, doesn’t it?

    Excellent poem; I have been there, led to this limb. Like a fool, I followed. Then, I was swallowed:-( Thank you for sharing your lovely words.

    Thank you, Shannon 🙂 You might be able to relate to my “Toxic Prince Harming” poem …
