cravings... [written March 31st 2004]

i crave
sunshine and happy smiles
that share their warmth with the world
liars smiles
seeming so sincere as they hide the darkness within
fake warmth freezes my soul into numbing cold that steals
it's life
one piece at a time

each trust that's shattered is like crystal
crashing upon mortar
with no consideration for the slivers that imbed themselves
within the tender soles of
lightly stepping feet
forced to tread with even more care than ever before

untreated
these splinters become festering
sickness running rampant through the soul
the concequence of trusting only once

then multiply
