Fade To Black - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

You were a tornado
I the unsuspecting bush
You swept me up
in all your magnificence
Lifting me high
Your violence hidden
I let myself be carried
lulled by a false sense
of security...
Fade to Black...

Your words were like honey
Feeding my hungry soul
Caressing my tear streaked cheek
Whispering words I believed
I trusted you
Never questioning your ease
Your empty words...
Fade to Black...

You went away
I thought I'd die
For a little while
I felt lost, afraid
But you came to me
I was in shock
Your smile to me
said all I wanted it to say
I never knew...
I could feel that way
Fade to Black...

And now I hear
the cock crow thrice
Betrayal complete
Your soul of ice
But in your eyes
the truth lay bare
But still you lied
And lost your way
And now I'm gone
Forever I'll hide
Never to be your destiny...
Fade to Black...
