Vacant Words

Your promises Mean everything to me But, in reality are only Sweet lies from your dagger With a candy coated bloody shell That makes me believe you Even though I am left with Baker's chocolate once again Tongue of torture stabbing my heart Torment dripping from my soul In this maze of truth and deceit Bewildering pandemonium overcomes me Frantically trying to see past the fog in the mist Sacred words Slowly dying Sinister oration Bathing in dishonor Rabid dreams Monotone expression Lifeless speech Dressed like royalty But only emptiness exists Behind the vacant words you utter
