You go up in flames from the lies
you delicately loved to spill
from your lips.
Blazing red embers of sweet satisfaction
dance before my eyes as your
screams spill truth.
I took caution in your concealed deception
and even when I questioned you
I already knew.
The truth was my redemption from almost
drowning in your falseness but now
you burn in salvation for your sins.
But you aren’t the only one to burn,
no I burn too to be reborn; a phoenix
rising above. Lesson learned.
