True Blood

Lead me unto temptation
with offerings of forbidden fruit,
While simultaneously
citing scripture and
Brandishing sins of impiety....

Project illusions of
non-existent fairy tales,
So that I may delude myself with their
subterfuge yet another day......

....Before reality rears its ugly head
and all that is left are the charred remains
of my naive convictions....
