Love Blinds Truth

Written by: Tamra Craft

Glaciers float around obsidian pupils
In the crystal pools of my world.
I press against the razored quills
Of companions fates unfurled.

Vines of discredit wrap the columns
Of all the secrets suppressed.
Rooted in the depths of swollen gums
And branded against milky flesh.

Ripples waver over blind eyes
Glistening with sarcastic humor.
Never sees the failings, soon demise
Deaf to the undulating rumors.
