Burning and Bitter

She was consumed.

How could he? How dare he?

Why did he do it? She thought she had him in her pocket.

But… it all blew up in her face.

And then, when some of her supposed friends and coworkers just wouldn’t stop talking about it — couldn’t stop heaping hatred and bilious comments on himthe betrayer… well, she shared their outrage but at a certain point, she wished they would just shut up.

Burning and Bitter

Burning and bitter
are my thoughts tonight
I can taste the poison
of the lies I heard tonight
I have seen my soul
like the falcon
you gunned down in flight

You’re a sorceress
you’re a whore
but you’re oh
so sweet in the night
