Sometimes I play the fool (Poem)


I sometimes play the fool

Sometimes I play the fool,

Weighing their loyalty against mine,

Truth, error, blatant lies!

Let them think I'm crazy,

Tenderhearted, unblinded eyes, 

Ruminating their meaningless thoughts,

In the midst of their madness, senses awake,

Feigned emotions, like musty air escaping their lips,

Another favor,

A dire need,

A treasure to their soul,

A scorching flame in mine,

Ever wanting more,

Nothing to give,

Let them call me crazy,

Clown's in town,

Deafening  silence, eagles eyes,

The show must go on, 

Play the fool to catch the fool,

They call themselves wise.

PS: Some people will love you as much as they can use you. Their loyalty ends where the benefits stop.
