A.R.Salandy - Toxic Truths

exist where jagged whispers

Brighten coddled skin

With bitter love,

As agonizing delirium

Becomes a nightly revision

Of reconvened lust

Derived from languid shells

Coated in tempered binding

Housing pulsating vigor,

The rhythm of transients vessels

Fighting valiant battle

For the gentile souls

That contort to the howls

Of arcane shadows

Awoken by stained sheets

An ill-conceived thrill

Resulting in reactionary discontent

Materialized under an aged moon

Ten lunar cycles present.
