UNHEALTHY PORTIONS

Everyone wants a piece of me.

So take one,

Invite yourself for seconds

And indulge in a sinful third.

Use a rusted fork as your weapon of choice

And dig through the burnt crust of my heart,

Right down into the tart blackberry core.

But please make note of its bitter aftertaste.

You can blame my unfair Sophia for that!

She claimed to love me

But women lie…

They all lie!

Everyone wears masks…

Everyone disguises themselves as allies.

You always take a portion of my soul,

Inviting yourself for thirsty seconds,

Indulging in thirds, if there are any leftovers.

  1. Wow that was deep! sad but true…so many sugarcoated people these days. but im an optimist, i know theres people out there who are real, just hard to find. When u find them u’ll see that they give as much as they take if not more. Try to keep hope. : ) ur work is amazing tho, thank u for sharing!
