Two Poems


I was led to delusion, 

From belief to deception.

I never doubted your honey

But you treated me to poison.

I put my heart in your trust

But you sold it off to Lucifer.

You greeted me with false embraces

And I was pierced bloody with icy nails.

Your smile was a glinting knife

Beneath you hid my lurking fate.

I followed you in good faith 

But was brought where innocence dies.


Your promises were sham

And you hid behind word games.

I trusted you beyond measure 

But what you did wasn’t fair.

You wove my trust like fine gauze

And tore my delicate faith with claws.

The wounds bled without a tongue

Your schadenfreude was without conscience.
