Outside she is all smiles and blue skies

Inside her soul is a raging storm

A hurricane of hurt

A tornado of terror

A monsoon of madness

Heaven help the day she releases her tempest

She’ll destroy everyone and everything in her path

He runs a finger down her spine

And a hand up her thigh

Her heart screams No

While her body begs for more

She’s caught between agony and ecstasy

The value of her purity worthless

As her desires eclipse virtue

He smiled, thinking he’d hit payday

It wasn’t until years later he realized nothing came cheap

The contours of her chaos cost him too much

And his windfall spiraled into a deficit he wasn’t willing to pay

The smoke screen vanished

His deceptions were revealed

The scarlet of his lies

Are reflected in her eyes

The web of his deceits 

Turns into bars of regret

Leaving him in solitary confinement

Alone and broken

I had an epiphany of the worst kind

To my light and love, you’re blind

All you see is the dark side of my heart

The razor’s kiss, the cuts, they tear us apart

I bleed despair and surrender to the sorrow

To the coldness of no tomorrow
