My Poetic Playground
Email Poem | Today's Poetry

My lips are sadly numb,
paralyzed by deceit.
Words that once flowed
like a raging river,
lay lifeless in a shallow pool
of extinction,
their last breath unjustly choked
by deliberate hand.
Vibrant words of friendship and love
painfully perish,
leaving behind empty memories
of delusion and fraud.
A devious heart proudly earns its trophy
of depravity and loss,
crouching surreptitiously
behind illusion,
awaiting the next unsuspecting victim.
