You make others crave you
with your tantalizing words
that roll off your tongue like crystalized honey.
It’s a new form of sweetness--
making it easy to ignore the fact that
it's slowly rotting you
from the inside out.
When you eventually become aware
that you’ve been poisoned
masquerading as sugar--
it’s too late.
The toxin creeps through your capillaries
like the drug that it is,
burning your veins
while at the same time
constricting your lungs,
burning you alive precisely as it
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
