A sin of gluttony.

A sickness of mind
A life damaged by words
Of people unkind.

Fingers trying to touch the dawn,
But when the soul is heavy,
Even the sun can’t chase out the dark.

And everything is just so much better when he says he loves me.

Hurling accusations back & forth
They saw their palace of lies crumble.
In deafening silence,apology they mumble.
