Sweet Posion

You poisoned our love

With sweet lies

Made it impossible

For our love to survive

Please keep your distance

From me. 

 

Do not come to me

I do not see you,

Do not speak of me

I know you no longer

 

You who have scorned me

Laughed at my turned back

Have you forgotten

Darling,

Your mouth that spoke ill of me

Only yesterday?

I stood, waiting

For you to run in my arms

You ran away instead.

 

What of the many promises

We made, solemnly

Whispered in the dark?

What of our dreams of marriage

Our loving smiles

And gentle caresses?

 

Do not come to me

I do not see you,

Do not speak of me

I know you no longer
