All the same(Poem)

Like you
I fell for the
flowery ways of life
and discounted the thorns.

Like you
I fell for the book
turning a blind eye to the tragedy
in the climax.

Like you
I fell for the romance
And bypassed the whatever
that was left of me.

Like you
I fell for the cheque
and winked at the balance sheet.

Like you
I fell for the answer
and missed the question.

Like you
I fell for the story
And forgot the shades
and shadows of the character.

Like you
I fell for the war
but didn’t count the bullets.

Like you
I’m gone.
