Back Again pt 2

Your eyes look at me again,
I feel myself turn mannequin.

I know the fate that awaits
as you tempt the three fates.

You words are masterfully designed
in a trap, and I am so inclined

to see there is no escaping you
no matter what I try, I’m one for two.

Forced to watch my heart decay
in the glass box you have on display.

That taste of forgiveness is poison on my lips.
From your rancid mouth I take the liar’s kiss.

Why do you keep coming back to me
if you never do plan to stay, simply?

I can’t always pretend to be all you need
for just like you, I know that I can bleed.

Your eyes again they look at me
but it was never me that you did see.

    Madison, well crafted and painful enough for a lortab. Others often fail to grasp the pain they inflict by not seeing us as we truly are. But then again, I don't always project the true me! Thanks so much for your kind remarks on my stuff. Love, Will
