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.
