Precarious Love.

Venom aimlessly roaming my palms.
Invading solitude’s secret.
Stealing aged wisdom.
A thief.

Cancer deliberately consuming my breath.
Battering stability’s sway.
Quivering blind silence.
An assault.

Acid carelessly burning my flesh.
Blazing Sabbath’s stance.
Searing abstract wealth.
A wildfire.

Poison foolishly dancing along my spine.
Teasing submission’s surface.
Provoking complacent power.
A scam.

Love like parasitic toxin.

You’re words.
Not mine.

Could you explain the metaphors? I'm curious as to how you put this together in your mind.
