Caught in His Web

My Broken Heart

I’m killing myself slowly

drinking in this poisoned lust

and enwrapping myself

in his web of lies.


Entrapped in his kiss,

silky tongue slithering

its way into my heart,

a venom that tastes so sweet.


Lace-woven words to lure me in,

injecting me with confidence

while you crawl into my skin

and lay seeds of hope.


I’m not your victim though;

I was captured willingly

committing suicide by

letting you get a hold on me.
