A box full of darkness
Your parting gift
No hope or inspiration
Nothing left of it.

Wounded, forsaken
Battered and bruised
You took what you wanted
I’ve sadly been used. 

Believed every word 
Everything that you said
The lies and the whispers 
I can never forget .

Plotting and planning
How did it begin?
You had an agenda
You knew this would end.

I followed you blindly
Down a black hole
I gave you  my all 
My body, my soul.

Masterfully done
Strategically paired
You took what you wanted
You never played fair. 

A demon disguised
So charming , so shrewd
Lured into madness
I gave into you.
