The game

The game is so alluring 
The desire 
to have the unobtainable 
To feast upon the flesh 
by the lies we created,  
calls to us. 
Like vampires 
we demand more,
And leave a trail of victims in our path 
Some do not even know 
that they are victims yet 
The game grows beyond our control, 
like wildfire. 
The rules are blurred 
the lines are crossed without regard 
Every time we travel this path,
we do so with a hunger 
a desire for something  
that we can never have 
We dance along this path 
that surely will self destruct
and care none the less
