Hope blossoming, with every breath filled lung.

Words dance from tongue to tongue.

Portraits dance in rhythm,

soft and surreal.

Milky petals,

swaying in moonlight.

Vibrant rays of sun,

sleeping on clouds.

This time means forever.

Just like the last?

The heart is ravenous,

greedy and perverse.

Eyes and ears,

play tricks in the dark.

Promises lifted from poison lips,

fall rusted and fractured.

Eulogy of a false prophet.

Cheap and dirty left on the kitchen floor.

Resentment growing, with every breath filled lung.

Lies taste sweet to a hungry heart
