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.
