When I swallowed your chocolate covered lies,
I took them greedily, letting them melt in my mouth
and ignoring the poison rushing through my unworthy veins.
Then one day came the symptoms;
cold lonely empty shell defined be a pale frame,
sleepless eyes falling deeper in an ashen face,
unshed tears building a dam in an unsuspecting mind.
And even as I waste away from your oh so beautiful devilry,
I die to please you and your unforgiving gaze
that's piercing my soul with a hint of fiery ice.
But I forgive you because it is self destructive
to expend a hateful emotion on someone
you still, and always will, care for.
Because I love you.
