Bathetic Reek

Her charm had a sly,
an uncalled deceit,
as if a thousand lies were squirmed
to display the simper

And her eyes dubious,
holding many tales of mendacious miseries
and a sea of perfidious nonchalant cries

And despite such screaming thoughts protruding with visible warning signs
he got pulled into her world
meandering his way
into her enigmatic spell
slowly but surely
only to find a disappointing bathetic reek
and he kept it close to his delirious heart
which kept reminding him of his mistake
for a lifetime
