Strip the patina
The path of least resistance
Your true preference

Take the world entire
A sweet lie is still a lie
And you, its teller

For one to deserve
One must be found deserving
You were never so

All things now restored
Ledgers balanced and books closed

Get thee gone, away
With those flattering falsehoods
Cheap words from loose mouth

Took my breath away
But erred to try for my love
You who could not trust

The exhalation
Last breath slowly exiting
Expulsive relief
