Chef’s Special

Sitting here, feeling kind of crazy Recalling all of the lies he fed her She chewed and swallowed it all As he seasoned each lie better each time The delicious taste of deceit on her taste buds Never tasted sweeter, than when he spoon fed her Sometimes, she would choke trying to swallow But of […]
