Baited

I was captured

on a sunny day

with that sharp

sparkling line

The invitation cast

manipulation

My mouth may be hooked

yet I cannot help

to laugh along with you

For it was my own fault

I followed you to the shore

I wanted to know more

You showed me your feet

and danced on the beach

I was enticed

by the glow of the lights

But it was all for show

I didn’t know

and now

even though

you tore me apart

I sit here on display

as your trophy

polished and beautiful

but

gutless

and missing my spine
