I take a step back
and the picture is clear
for the first time
in over a year.

Your intentions,
though well meant,
have crushed my heart
and left my soul bent.

I see what you hide
is bursting from your skin
and your true colors
show in the lies you spin.

The fire between us,
burns hot, can you tell?
No longer from passion,
but from the bowels of hell.
