it doesn't need a hook to be bait!

By Brenton FPublished 10 months ago 1 min read

flew straight in on

as it stood suspended

nailed to a wall

like a hippy


oh idolise; refine

embellish the pure beauty


waiting for the fall

waiting for it all


test the bait


never than late


define love and hate

and the line in-between

razor keen purity

and delicate balance

on sale to enhance

and perhaps perchance


mutually blind

can't read your mind (not all the time)

so tell me

of the voices in your head

what and why was said

all about your paranoid dread

what you think when you lay in your bed

sometimes you wish you was dead

but i feel to much


yours becomes mine

and it ends

sad poetry
