We were in an embrace,
Your face turned away from me...
I smiled at the moment,
Unaware of what was to be.
We breathed in perfect synchrony -
Our hearts dancing in the rise and fall;
Your arms tightened around my waist,
In every moment, the world grew small.
You broke away and lit a smoke -
Inhaled and exhaled with criminal flair;
Burnt and spent to ashes,
Obscure swirls disappeared into thin air.
The remnants crushed under your boot,
You turned and pulled me into you;
Your touch cold and unloving,
Your eyes, a steely hue.
The stench of smoke rested on my breath,
Your iron grip marked my skin;
Your gaze gnawed through sanity,
Consuming it from the heart within.
A tempest morphed from a gentle calm,
The storm to be braved became you;
You had me for life in your embrace,
Now you've ripped my heart out too.
