Mistress Of Lies Poem by T.James Becker

Mistress Of Lies

Rating: 5.0

Farewell to the mistress of lies and deceit
I gave you my heart, I knelt at your feet
Softly you whispered so sweetly you spoke
Each promise you vowed went up in smoke

You walked in the shadows, hide from the light
I was blinded by love and fell for you plight
Green Eyes like emeralds, hair black as coal
Like a vampire kiss you sucked out my soul

Dagger like talons you cut open up my skin
Releasing your venomous poison within
My body convulsed and writhed in pain
You watched me suffer until I was drained

You walked in beauty the essence of grace
A Deceptive smile on your angelic face
A sirens song or a fever of the mind
Nothing left of you now, access denied

I know there are always two sides to a story & yours poet friend is rather gory. This beautiful woman I do not know, but from your description, I dislike her so! A brilliantly written tale of the painful side of love which could not last 10

Tj, had to read again. This is truly beautifully written. You did it all: brought us into your inner self in such a way, using your words so deftly to describe your anguish and overwhelming disappointment and confusion re love, as to allow the reader to fully connect with you and ourselves. Yes, as all have said, you are a poet. Thank you! Carol
