Tom Bevan – Cuts Deep

Cuts Deep

He took you for a ride
took you for a fool
put you in a place
we didn’t learn about at school.

This cuts deep.

You his pride and toy
He your every thought,
handled you with care
offered kindness you sought

and found, at first

he reeled you in with words
and tilted his hat
a gentleman, a prince
the loving glance and all that

shit.

You put all your eggs in his basket
watched
as he dropped them on your face
could only smile and hope and wait
as he put in you in a place

you didn’t know existed.

Put you in the place
now

you can’t exist without.
