Heart Misery

heart misery is he
betrayer of my love
soul batterer
love’s liquid leaking from the cracks
he chiseled in my tender heart
as he dances
and laughs again
soul misery is he
false prophesies falter from his lips
a crooked smile draped casually
over fangs carefully concealed
so real was he
were we
yet as the evening closes her eyes to sleep
I keep
remembering the illusions
the lies
begging for answers
to only find
