I gasp for air from all the lies
You force down my throat
And burn my lungs
The bitterness, the bile of betrayal,
The taste it burns my tongue
You spoke of sweet promises, you never would fulfill
You left me with wounds that may never heal.
I wish I had seen who you are in disguise,
before I let you leave me shattered with all of your lies.
You never tried to understand
That's why you let go of my hand
I miss the presence of your rose petals
But I prefer the absence of your thorns
I miss the presence of your golden soothing voice
But prefer the lack of wounds your silver tongue had torn
I am in stoic bliss with your ghost no longer here
I have severed my ties so I have nothing left to fear
This is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Your words pierce my heart.
The phrasing is powerful in this. Good work.
