Love Undone

The perfect lie whispers love
while talented teasing fingertips travel the complex topography
of her curves.
Holy Rapture!
Holy Hell!
The perfect lie whispers fidelity
while the radio-active rains and poisonous gases descend swirling and soaking
through her hairline and ribcage with equal fury.
The perfect lie whispers vows
while her eyes slowly lose focus and the sockets hollow into gray ditches
then comes the agonizing stillness of shock.
Sanity decays.
The perfect lie does not commit murder in a single horrific slash
or an ear shattering boom …
rather it kills in pieces,
in bits and chunks
in much the same way as an insidious cancer travels the interior jungle of a body
moving ever so slowly …
ever so stealthily …
ever so silently …
robbing her of all she knew and
all she valued
leaving torment in its wake.
Digesting her ego …
self loathing ensues.
