What Have I Eaten? – Free Verse – August 24, 2015

Collage 4

what have I eaten – lies and smiles
chocolates from a poisoned box
raven now sing of all the times
you’ve led me down this well-trod path
frozen like a crystal is my heart
as the clock talks monotonously
ticktock – ticktock
the pendulum swings but time has stopped
as here I lie inside my tomb

what have I eaten – lies and smiles
what some people call love
