Whoa. Your writing is amazing. O
I really like this poem. Good job!

"The deceiver/The monster behind the smile."... I think you should put a comma or semi-colon or period there...
I liked the formatting. It worked well to set things apart. I also like behind this. The emotions of the narrator were great. Only slightly remorseful, but mostly sort of resigned to this fate.
PS If you're bored this weekend check out the Review Game and/or the Review Marathon (links in my profile).

When I read this through I was thinking of meth instead of an actual person. So far, I think this is one of your best.
Curious, though - was this about a person at all?

"Places you've only seen in your nightmares." This line is very impactful and intense-it's sad to think that the speaker houses 'dark places' within herself that resemble nightmares.
"My fingertips, barbed." Creative use of the word 'barbed' here.
"The Deceiver." Powerful.

I loved it. A style I'm not used to, an explanation of thought hiding in a perverse mind, that most poems and stories you can merely guess at. :P I shall read more.
