Swallowed up every lie

And any excuse fabricated.

A better, sweeter alternative

To procrastinate incoming pain.


So innocent, delightfully oblivious

In a rosy-pink love-sick state.

Ignorant of looming dark clouds

Over the artificial golden horizon.


Just holds close and still listen to

Their whispered sweet nothings

Spoken in silver-forked tongue.
