Words can draw you in,
Deep into a world
Where nothing else matters.
Where you bare your all
To someone you know…
Or do you?
You place your trust in this person.
Certainly leading you
To a place you are meant to be.
A place with your intended.
But then again,
Perhaps your naiveté
Guides you to a course
Recklessness takes over.
Your perceptions skewed.
Naïve is what you feel.
Taken, drawn to this force,
A vacuum of intoxicating pleasure
And deep pain.
The throbbing of your heart
Just before it breaks.
The stabbing pain of realization,
Numbness overtaking your being,
Shivering from this cold reality.
Your desperation has brought you here:
Hunger for inspiration, happiness, hope.
Thirst for knowledge, wisdom, and love.
Every morsel, each crumb
A bountiful feast set before you,
Your last meal,
