Poem: Fool

Fool

This trusting and full-of-faith spirit
With naïve, well meaning devotion
Fool
For those adored and admired will disappoint
So that sorrows become a deluge of regrets

An affirmation for dedication
A sort of fantastical illusion?
Fool
For transitory is the bond given
Too often and with so little weight

Fool to believe
Fool to love
Fool to trust
Fool to take in (Taken in?)
Fool to embrace

Always the fool
And to be again and again

Not in my eyes. Not at all.
