Favorite Quote:
"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

A single lie fell from
chapped lips

a smooth tongued
betrayal of truth

separated from oneself
sliced with a steak knife,
down the January core.

that version of
sanitary smiles
cherry cheeks
fireplace heart has been
chopped down like
the old oak tree,

A virus spread through genes .
a sickness embedded
into the skin of a crime scene.
want is the surrender
another safe haven found
in the flesh of control.
