A jaded man

The sting of shattered trust fills his veins with toxic spite, contaminating his heart. He finds solace in a bottle, quenching his resentment, slurring forth caustic fumes; nauseating his liver. Until he spits her treachery up with a sickening heave, in the shallow, murky gutter of a jaded man's reprieve. .

Yes, the bottle gives solace to many broken hearts, but only love can heal the jaded heart of love ... I so believe the Christ in this ... you are blessed and highly favored with a pen. One love.
