Life Ever After • Samantha Salomon

One touch promise compromise
Overanalyze, does it, she does it
Wants whole, not parts of it
All prepackaged and tangible.
Served dark, given cold.
Some time now running through
Finish cover final hours
And now sitting in darkness.
Vengence sold and no one knew.
And the thirst drive any second
Take the fall,
Lose it all in instant gratitude
Flattery corruption uncanny
Arresting staged not in breathing blinking needing
But crumpling after
She's sleeping (blue).
Aftershock seeping in slowly dreaming
Advantage taken it seems
And all the while surface screaming
Pawns ready standing
Unshaken bathed in green
