Poisoned Love

Poisoned Love

Love, a sweet venom that seeps in

Like a potion poured under the skin

Intoxicating every cell within

A blend of pleasure and pain akin.

But love can sometimes turn a shade

When emotions sour and affections fade

Its once sweet taste is now decayed

An elixir of bitterness made.

Like a poison it spreads afar

Feeds on trust and leaves a scar

A cloying, toxic, sickly char

A love that has gone way too far.

Thus it is best to let love be

Than to hold on to dishonesty

For poisoned love will only flee

And a heart left to heal emptily.
