Sly

A sly smile

A caress without a touch

Some things are better left unsaid

Turn your face to the light

You believe to be sun

But do not let the rays fool you

The warmth you feel is artificial

Made by the hands of a woman

Who poses as a girl

And her pretense of innocence

It is but a façade

Underneath lies a murky depth

“Take a swim” she whispers

“The water is warm”

Your dive will be deep

At first you may embrace the heat

Only to realize your skin is aflame

Your lungs full of malignant ghosts

And you will open your eyes

To onyx and her sly smile
