Daily Prompt Poetry: Victim


It’s been a while since I posted poetry and I’m not sure it’s good but you’ll be the judges of that I guess :).  This piece is inspired by the daily prompt word: Martyr.


You took it away, everything,

All the cheer, the mirth, the good.

Made sure they all believed you,

The lies now where you stood.

Taunted, joked and jested,

That you could make them see.

A story so invented,

They’d never believe me.

Upon your podium, began,

To tell your words of deceit.

Making all believe that,

I lied, cheated and beat.

Your words carried weight,

Greater than the Earth.

Made you into the victim,

Vulnerable as at birth.

Too late for me to show,

Nobody will believe.

That someone so innocent,

Could actually deceive.

Enjoy the praise you have,

For telling your own truth.

It will not be forever,

Someone will play sleuth.

Reveal the real reality,

Honesty laid bare.

Everyone will see you,

Caught in your own snare.

So play the victim, do it!

See how long you last.

In the end they’ll all see,

And you will be outcast.
