A poem about mistrust and resentment.

By Madison NewtonPublished 2 months ago Updated 2 months ago 1 min read

Lengthy, lazy loopholes.

Lies lay lovers low.

Lies level landscapes, laced lullabies.

Lies, little-looking, last.

Look long, listen, learn,

letting lies linger like leeches

lets love lose.
