PSEUDO

You’re a pseudo hero
a counterfeit lover
meagre soul undercover
the antagonist who enchants
in a mock romance.

You’re an apocryphal fool
playing the game of chance
fallacious in his charm.
delusive creature quick to abuse.
impassioned women are misused.

An imaginary Don Juan,
a bogus Casanova.
a quasi member of the human race,
you’re disgrace.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back

I salute anyone who breaks the rules in the interest of art and great poetry writing just as much as I admire poets who craft meter and verse within the confines of good grammar. Walk the tight rope or jump from it and see if you can fly.

I was privy to this one before you posted it and I have to say this one grows on you. The first time you sent it to me, it was ok, but i wasn't dragged into it. I have read it maybe ten times since that first read and it gets better with each read...it is fast becoming one of my favourites of yours.

I also know a little of what inspired this write and you have hooked it perfectly!

you ain't 'alf bad ya know!

"The perfect woman perpetrates literature as she does a small sin: as an experiment, in passing, to see if anybody notices it - and to makes sure that somebody does." - Nietzsche

There are way too many men like this, but I think there are a few that are not lol

Thank you for reading.
