ARSENIC DREAMS

Ah, that love
That perfect soulmate
The one
To whom you
Would give it all
Meeting
In the most
Unlikely place
Finding each other
At last
Traveling together
In the eternity
You've always wanted,
Needed
So perfect; seemingly
Dreamlike
But are you sure
A dream it is not?
Waking up
To a shining day
Lost and lonely
In twisted reality
Reality tailored
Just for your torture
By the god
You know him
The one who snatched
Your loved ones
In blissful
Slumber
The one
That makes things
Beautiful
Then turns them sour
In a touch
The god
Who delivers
Pain
Like arsenic
Killing you slowly
The love,
The dream
Just one more
Dose
To swallow
With a sickly
Sweet smile
