Carcinogenic Love

by Sherrell Faythe

Carcinogenic love
Stomach churns because of it 
Is it the lust of it?
Will acceptance of cancer come easy-thinking of that love?
Love that truly does kill
Not like shot gun-burn up love 
More like stress induced physical deterioration 
From blind redundancy and growth retardation
Self-preservation becomes extinct 
Character of the beast appears unique
Drama from day to day 
Still devilís play
Pacing with worry 
So in a hurry 
Want things to get right 
So very much- so very easy to lose sight 
Living life aimlessly
Knowing tomorrow not guaranteed
Letting emotions dictate conversation 
Angry dialogue fostering replication 
Failing to tame the in mouth beast 
Too loud!! Unable to hear spirit speak 
Addicted to dramatic love
Need to feel speed -heart palpitations
Causes a euphoric sensation 
While toxins travel throughout 
Souls fester in mistrust and linger in doubt
Infectious this thing - love in disguise
Unrecognized - ultimate demise
