Satin And Savagery
Trapped in the shadows,
we must remain.
Controlled by the powers,
of Love and Pain.

The truth we hide,
is eventually exposed.
And still we try,
to remain composed.

The trust that falls,
when before your eyes.
You see what is hidden,
behind the sex and the lies.

A fragile heart,
shattered by rage.
And the inability,
to turn the page.

A person changed,
by their disgust with fate.
A thirst for revenge,
from the eyes of hate.

The given illusion,
of love and trust.
Fallen victim,
to lies and lust.
An alternate, less poetic, title for this poem could be "Adultery And Divorce".
