I played the part you wanted of me
I shed those tears that you now see
manipulated, weak, a pawn am I?
Do you believe in the tears I cry?

Your reputation preceded you
Warned, I knew just what to do
I used you as you used me
don’t believe everything you see

I saw the secret smile on your face
as you prepared to leave my place
satisfied you’d inflicted pain
knowing you would do it again

Powerless to stop your game
I let you think I had no shame
but in my heart, I cared no more
for you than for my bedroom door.

The worst punishment I can think of is "not caring". You dished it out well with this poem.

BRAVO!!! Sometimes there can be two players in the same game, in this case, both win and indeed both loose
