After having been Played

Do not say
that you have seen
another way

for us to play.
It has not been
at all okay.

You took away
my old routine,
promised me a better day.

I believed that sick cliche
played chance just like a slot machine,
but of course, to my dismay

my trusting heart you did betray.
I was so green!
And by the way

I've learned from my naivete.
one last thing I guarantee:
(if I were you, I'd stay away)
if we ever meet again, there will be hell to pay!
