Love Sacrifice


Waking up

not from rest,

but from deception.

The grief,

the loss,

the anger,

and the fear.

“How was I led astray

so easily?”


always the worst reveal.


No knife is sharper

than the one

that you put in

the hands

of who

commits the sin.

Waiting until

your back is turned,

they whisper

“I love you.”

and slip the blade

between your ribs.


Love and trust


so easily.

Seldom do things

ever go as planned.


our expectations,

so much easier

when one of us is damned;

and the other is a lamb.
