Turns out

He'd lied all along.

Every statement

Every word uttered

Under his morning breath,


His smile,

Oh, how it charmed me

Right out of everything

I'd ever lived for.

I never knew I could burn

From the inside out'

Like I do when I feel

His touch.

A menace, a coward

But an exceptional lover.

How did we end up like this,

A tangle of legs

And lies?
