Favorite Quote:
"Some of the best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller

Bone white smile
Flashes across the table from me.
Your pompous manner,
Your arrogant air,
Fill me with a certain distaste.
"Follow me."
Like a father,
You'd told me what I'd wanted to hear.
Told me the world sucked.
Told me I was right.
Told me you loved me.
Suckered me away from my parents.
Weaned from a sweet breast
With words of things much sweeter.
You fed my need to satisfy
Made me believe a lie.
Captured me in a net of smoke
That were your promises.
I swirl my hand into the air.
This is what you mean to me.
Empty as air around me.
"Trust me," you'd said,
"Your parents don't know you the way I do."
You were right.
They'd never known me...
Through your blind eyes.
Spoken by a true liar...
