Like a thief

Like a thief in the night.
You have tiptoed into my life.
With tales that have ruse me.
With flair that have confound me.

Like a thief in the night.
You came and pilfered this callow soul.
You came and unfasten this heart like a skilled mole.
Your guise of true amity creates this leaden toll.

Like a thief in the night.
You flee just as fast as you had appeared.
You stole what was not yours without revere.
You left me with a mind that is now unclear.

Like a naïve being.
I gave you my heart’s combination without foreseeing,
Your lips full of scam.
Your eyes filled with sham.
Like a thief in the night.
Your essence has created a life with plight.
Home in the dark is where I retreat.
Numbness of these sad sentiments I want to defeat

Just like any other thief.
The day will come when you will be debriefed.
Your actions will not go without punishment.
And then, you will see how it feels to have impaired sentiments.
