You were so clever

You were so clever, 
you diged into my world 
like ants looking for shelter,
I was empty like a tunnel. 

You were vicious like a snake, 
not while you needed 
my lips to quench your fire, 
I became vain in my desires.

When you weren't killing me, 
you were charming, 
and when you were charming 
you were still a liar.

I never really knew you, 
you were like silence with
many secrets hidden, and I was 
not with you.
I clinch to sadness and sadness 
so tenderly hold me back, 
I can smell the gardenia of 
your emptiness and it 
grabs my soul, 
so sweet, yet so dead.

With tears of pouring thin rain, 
they touched my bones 
and hurt me, 
beating my hopes, 
my words are more yours than mine, 
they climb up my body like flames
waiting for your return.

You are the blame for 
this cruel tone in my voice, 
before you! there was nothing 
but me; now you left a hole in me! 
you hear me?
