A discredited love,

edited by this


self serving


venting resentment

against contentment 

with his inventive tongue. 


I've been nothing

but attentive,


effective -

and this subjective


for you,

Is effective?


Grief slides

up your sleeves,

as he interweaves

deceiving ideas -

relieving your

misperceiving eyes

with his

pre-conceived lies. 


You're blind to this

maligned mastermind 

who is so inclined

to get behind

Your state of mind,

to confine

and define you. 


He's resigned you,

and assigned you

to the headlines

using nothing but

a hairline fault-line. 


He's "beside" you,

he says - "inside" you,

behind you.

He just wants to

unwind you.


I just want to

unbind you.

To be entwined

With you. 

Reminded by

divine alignment,

that you outshine 

the sunshine. 


I am genuine,

he is serpentine.

Disincline from this

asinine minus sign,

and redesign 

our storyline.
