Sinister smile behind all acts,
burns all kind hearts, she stays intact.
Back-peddled words try to retract,
but proof is real and truths are facts.
Big eyes stunned look while getting caught,
the lines she spoke, everyone bought.
Forgets all of the lessons taught,
snatch with both hands no second thought.
Confidant with loyalty lack,
carried swift blades silent attacks.
Gifts of dark will, behind the back,
ate trust and hopes as sneaky snacks.
Still thank her for the fun-filled times,
filled with laughter that felt sublime.
Facing steep paths, together climbed,
cocktails of joy lingered and chimed.
Memories drown in a shocked head,
as time moves on, pronounce them dead.
Another bond, one comes to dread,
wishing her love, hoping it spreads.
Impossible to expect light,
from someone who only knows fights.
So sorry for the pain she feels,
pray that someday her spite could heal.
