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.
