Deluded

It is when the night comes
and the air hangs in silence
you again enter my mind
Perplexing thoughts refusing to die
Filling my head as the stillness struggles to calm
Recalled memories still stinging
Drawn by your magnetism
I was fooled by a charlatan
Brazen and heartless
Robbing me of joy
I was taken by your guile
and allowed caution to blow in the wind
My ticket to ride, a purchase made in haste
