Shattered Dreams...

Was it
nothing but
"silver-tounged tenderness?"

(lulled,
bemused)

Was it only
sugar-coated words, and
honey-dipped tounges?

Or, the
heat,
rhythm,
throbbing
lights,
pulsation,
sensation,
fascination?

It was prevarication,
lies.

Hurt
twice again,
once again,
over again,
again.

Pain
thought once
disregarded thrice
overlooked twice

Smiles??
Only stained memories,
shattered dreams, and deceit.

Oh Babe...

This one makes me angry/sad...

Used and abused.

It makes me want to cry and hurl things at the same time.

Hey on a more positive note - go hit my blog for last post.

Hugs you tightly and lets you know life is goooooooooood even if it's bad some days.

Deceit and lies are the worst betrayal.

Lady M~

Crying and hurling fits. Or, did it when I wrote it. I thought with the whole rhythm thing going on here, it might fit. Somewhat.

Thanks for the hugs, Hun!

The deepest circle of hell is for betrayers and mutineers.

painful and very understandable. I don't know too many people who haven't felt that way before...

Lady M said...

Sending a triple dose of hugs with a shot of something yummy!

Plus some very big cheer.
