Gaslight

Blackened eyes reflect the venom 

That burned beneath your veins. 

Acrid breaths, defend the lies

Of a life you soiled and stained

Conceited smile to manipulate a fool, 

To bend and shatter the goodness. 

Masquerading as Hope,

Disguised as love

Defiled the light to sadness

 

Left stumbling for air

Left needing a heart

Left broken, left consumed, left abandoned

Conformed to the night, 

Darkness consumes, lost sight 

Of my life

Of my dreams

Broken, forgotten, stranded

 

But fire can’t forget

the disgusting torment

The subjugation,the humiliation, the laughter

It’ll burn through the pain, igniting the shame

Fuelled by frustration, by hate and by anger

 

And you’ll fucking burn
