Once upon a time, drenched in love we whispered,
saccharine promises filled with naive schemes,
sighing at horizon, blatant blue and blurred.
In fractured moments when befall sour dreams,
effervescing from solitary sips of wine,
I hack plans in the shadows where silence screams.
Your pleads stumbled between the walls, once benign.
I laugh, listening to whips of wicked sound
strangely shocked by ruthlessness. Yours? Or mine?
Coldly licks the hem of my overpriced gown,
trail of blood, unperturbed by lifeless frown.
