July 29, 2003
Searched beyond your face
a man I did not know
One that tested me —

I tried to chew the inedible lies
that you fed me
struggled to digest each story
word by word

I choked
with the feeling of dyspepsia
crawling up my esophagus
and burning my innards

I refused
to stomach the acrid taste
of elusion
served on a platter
of chrome

Somehow I was left
with the bitter taste
of regret

forgotten and served
the worm-like virus
of rumours

I foraged for something tangible
that would fill me
to the brim with comfort

I came up empty handed
