Put Down the Book

Like a character in a romance novel

He seemed to be perfect

But novels are only stories

Made up in someone’s mind

And he showed his true colors

With all his character flaws

In a matter of time

But when he hit her

That was the last straw

She closed that chapter of her life

And never looked back again

Glad to be rid of him

And all his deceitful ways


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – character
