Intoxicating Illusion

Your beautiful words

as intoxicating as wine

I drank in their sweetness

relishing every drop

that poured from your lips

I drank until I reeled

my head spinning

Tales of love

of  happily ever after

I sipped the nectar

to the very dregs

and in them found

the sober truth

Your beautiful words

were only ugly lies
