Flood Waters

 

Your tarnished halo betrays your angelic smile

Flood waters to shift and blur and drown your accomplishments

A new life to distract from what you abandoned

Dreams like frayed tuxedos and rotting flowers

Sickly sweet to cover the smell of your past

Of your actions

Saving others to placate that demon, giving him your talents and knowledge

Your eyes a tunnel, spirals down further than any human could ever guess

Innocent, young, your flesh cannot hold your head above your sea of lies

Your lips spew cruel tales until you believe them

Your eyes shine back at you and you remember, that fear crawls into your belly and nuzzles your intestines, twist, twist

Will she be the one to bear the consequences of your black soul

Tread in the muck, slip in the deep

Remember every time you sleep.
