Sam Wolf

the perils of disillusionment

the perils of disillusionment

the ache never leaves

for only fools blur a truth

walked among many snakes

sifting their nasty venom

rising, seeking, studying

for an antidote or immunity

some worse than a cancer

rotting inside and out

conditioned narcissists

short- lived leeches

drawing from both ends
