Attention Whore


I find it kind of funny
how you play into my game,
take me seriously even though
it's all a joke to me.


I act hard to get
and you make it so easy,
lured into my trap
when I fish for compliments.


Just a little coaxing
is all you need before
you're eating out
of the palm of my hand.


And I got you right
where I want you;
caught in my trap
and you had no idea.
