The Letter

Was it said

You were an angel?

In that fervoured whisper,

Sent to the void.


A heart so easily


By a practiced glamour,

Saw a vibrant rose,

But not the withered petals

Or toxic bladed thorns.


If your friend jumps,

Do you fall too?

And if your lover

Bears forth a poison

Do you drink without thought?



I do.
