Naked

Our Facades - Quite an old piece by yours truly. The Red of my lipsthat still concealstouch of your lies...The Dark of my Kohlthat competes the Blackof your callous style...The shiny polish of Paintthat hides the pain your loveengraved on my smile...It has all come to naught...Tears have rebelled,broken the levee,Began running freeUndid my put together face...Left me naked in a crowded place.©EntangledDesigns

Where were you?

Degradation - By yours truly. Where were you?The Devil rose upAscending the throneBraiding deceitInto the fabricof naive youth.His Believersburnt Integrity,Sanity layclawedto shreds.Mothersturned mad,their babesrundownby slow turningWheels of lawWhile Truth,sentencedto pay forthe sinsOf all,Perished,nailed to yourfibbing cross.Where were you?©EntangledDesigns

To Love A Cynic

Lovers In The Fray - By Yours Truly. It's a pity dear that I can't ever believe the love that drops from your misty gaze has ever really been sincere for me, aloof I walk the sands of armored beach,with thoughts that segue from leerytrappings of a betrayed spiritto isolated heart roaring ravenous screams. Unfortunate am I that... Continue Reading →

Although one is usually expected to use one or two, I wanted to stuff in as many as I could into one micropoetry because it felt like a... Continue Reading →
