Beautiful Lies

Beautiful Lies One beautiful lie , an unvoiced sonnet Words veiled with a crime that steals my hearts last beat Slow turn of your mood shows me disquiet With kisses warm and vulgar with deceit. One pulse stills, our love was not the one love, Just remains of a lukewarm cup of tea. You steep and brood, one pineing the lost dove. My broken wing lame, I fall into the sea. Beautiful lies, my heart begs for your fires To hear the words forged my way by anvil Beautiful lies, hope grows dim and expires Waiting for judgment by divine gavel Tremble my lips , tears fall dry from my eyes Protect me from madness, beautiful lies.

Beautiful! It follows the Shakesperean sonnet form that I love. This really touched me.
