Love and Lies …




Flowing silently, the raw sewage of love’s lies,


year after month, day after week,


yesterday’s emotions brutally strewn along the alleyways,


while love and lies haggle,

hustle, tearing at each other’s souls,


breaking each other,

shredding all that was once felt deeply and true,


love and lies rotting in the diseased rain,


flowing like slow sewage,


into the bowels of an unknown drain.
