the palm of your hand.

Venom of Truth
Venom of Truth

Nothing will ever be the same,
Shame and embarassed of the family name.
All the traditions gone- our bond begins the descend.
Customs prevail with you in absentia and I see no end.

Stuck in rumination of the past that I still yearn;
every time I come close you leave me to burn,
Tenebrous clouds hover as you pick a fight,
it went from giggles to cholers and out went the light.

I'd take a bet- not one step you would climb,
memories held dear, if only it was different this time,
missing the young version of you, way back,
the hollow box of your heart reflects pure black.

Why am I allowing you to pollute my mind,
Why can't I leave what's left of you behind,
My heart demands pleasure,
But my brain reads over the ledger.

Do you think I'm blind? I can't tell?
I know where this originates, good and well.
That husband of yours only acerbates, feeding you the words.
His machinations thrive to curse.
