Border Control

Pinterest image – source unknown

Boundaries of undefined lines

I curse their invisibility

I tiptoe closer, temptation in staccato

Consequences I beg, you deny

Perhaps an invitation on the sly

I am honest in my lies

Claiming our reality never made me cry


You do not know my tears 

Taste like acid rain, sweetly sustained

My smile never reaches your eyes

Obscured by love undisguised

Graced to another unafraid

Burning languidly in your loyal embrace

And finally, the lines become clear.


  1. “temptation in staccato”… absolutely love this line! The image of temptation coming in a sharp, detached note, each separate from another. It paints a vivid picture.
