subterfuge

you are vile,
a despicable fiend.
the tender savages in your mouth are poison.

there is a misery
in each defeat of our feud.
someone is subjugated.

there is a luxury
on a cloud nine.
the fiasco faces a ghastly vexation.

we agree to hate each other.
i can’t fix your peccadillo.
we agree undeniably.
i can’t fade in your scenario.
you destroy me with your subterfuge.
i can’t disappear from your window.
