The Box

more sickening than the senseless

tears of a young girl is,

your deceitful manner,

your careless abuse of those

so impressionable around

you &

your smile which masks it all

your carefree attitude misleading

your adoring fans to the

degradation you cause others

How surprising your Boldness

Caresses the innocent to the

point of trust

only to enclose them in THE

BOX of eternal terror

that will never let them

forget their mistakes

and I will never let you forget yours
