There you were like a world class chef,
With a delicious looking cake,
While poisonous ingredients,
Was what you used, to bake.

The facade maintained with excellence,
Not even an expert could see it was fake,
Painting love in soft pink clouds,
While luring in the bush, like a snake.

A terrific tactic well developed,
You managed to persuade,
Oh yes you were the ace,
At all the games you played.

A sweet smell of empty promises,
A labyrinth of lies for your trade,
The golden castle you painted,
Was a cell in your house of spade.

You studied well to gain control,
Just making sure I stayed,
All to your advantage,
Along with a mental blockade

Viciously calculating,
Placing the razor blade,
Oh no, you were no fool alright,
You knew I was afraid.

And never in your wildest dreams,
Would I be able to evade,
But my strength you underestimated,
And Truth will be displayed.

Yes, Iíll stand tall as your cover fade,
No, I wonít sit down until youíve paid,
Paid for the nightmares that you have made,
And all of those traps that you had laid.

One of the hardest things in life to try to understand is insincerity, Yet most people are not sincere and that disheartens those of us who are, but hopefully it will only make us more loving and therefore stronger. Great write. Pierre.

'Oh, the tangled webs we weave.' Or in this case, him. If this
is autobiographical, add my congratulations to those below {and those I am sure are to come}. Snakes-in-the-grass are hard to get rid of. Bite can be fatal, and they're too fast. Slither into your life. . .how scary can you get? Good job!! 'Pea' <3

I love this, the rhythm is excellent, and your word choice makes this sound so deadly, almost like a mystery. Great work.

When we show our mettle and determination to our enemies and detractors, they always shrink away in fear and cowardice
Very well crafted composition
Reviewed by Felix Perry 1/23/2006
Putstanding and soooo correct because I think you have found how strong a person you can actually be and have excelled at liveing. Well done write.
