Perception

“She can do better than you”, they all said;
I knew they were right, I’d gone to my head.
“She’s smarter, good looking and very well read,
And from we’ve been told, not a novice in bed.”

“You’re over your head, in these waters you’ve plunged -
You’re riding her wave, on her gifts you have sponged.”
Rebounding with pride, I parried and lunged
Defending my honor these charges expunged.

“She walked out the door, we told you she’d leave -
Like a parasite pest, to you she’ll not cleave.
You may cling to the hopes and the dreams you believe,
But deception of self is hard to perceive.”
