"Purgatory"

 

I’ll send you to the gallows post-haste

To a place you must be condemned

For the lies you so profusely blew

For the lives you could so easily take

 

No bitterness to follow through

In my mind's eye you're not beautiful

The disbelief and betrayal you see

Was just a man made destiny

 

Terrors known to all your foes

Swim eagerly through your poisoned veins

Every barb that pierces through your heart

Is a reflection of your disloyal face

 

Virtuous beings cease to exist

In this world that’s far from bliss

Full of scum and untrue souls

This is what your future now holds

Thanks, Ilan. :) I am glad you enjoyed it. 

 

I find pieces like this sometimes comforting to know that your foes may be given a taste of their own medicine.
