Petty Larceny …
So frequent I question when your lies began
how secrets clasped through granite chests.
Where penknives pierced in lithe-like spans
Small and serpentine they’d manifest.
Thus breached my soul an albatross
Writhe like lightning sheets, then all but gone
Your slavered mouth in waves of dross
I’m sick of life where heartbreak spawns.
So take your sugar coated lips
And kiss another’s shedding skin
When off your tongue the poison drips
my heart so plucked like violins.
The words of two-faced wit you spit
each phrase with gossamer deceit.
A vile beguiling counterfeit,
my heart the petty larceny.
How frail are you who cannot love
And judge how you will be in kind
For friend and God we ask above,
that your heart forever searches blind.
