Venom

I became your target.

But what exactly was the prize?

Truth was hard to see,

well hidden under the guise.

 

Slither like a viper,

quiet as can be.

No one was the wiser.

They simply could not see.

 

Whisper in their ears.

Tell such a pretty tale.

Acting like a victim

but your plan will surely fail.

 

Truth can’t hide forever.

Time will run its course.

I’ll still be standing,

despite the absence of remorse.

 

I believed in you.

Believed the lies you told.

The truth finally revealed.

But this pain is mine to hold.

 

So thank you for the lesson.

For teaching it to me well.

It’s not a pretty thing

to be put through so much Hell.
