Rotten

I am rotten,

rotten to a boundless core.

Overflowing with poison

I fill in the chalice of that

which I drape

under a veneer of love

and put it your lips

each day…

Everyday.

You hurt,

You suffer.

I smile,

Raise it to your lips,

call it a medicine,

Lie to you,

“Just one more sip.”
