while normally a good judge of character

(at least I think myself to be)

i admit i was initially fooled by your lies

captured in the intricate web you spin

i may still be kind ’cause that is who I am

but make no mistake i have learned my lesson well

oh and by the way….

No, it is not all about you

in fact, in the story of my life you will be a mere footnote.

    Sometimes we learn the hard way…but learning that way leaves an imprint and equips us to better navigate similar waters/people/experiences in the future. I love the title – footnote – I doubt that you’re a footnote in this person’s life 😉
