Packet of Lies


Packet of Lies


it is in the heaven's stomach;

you see a glittering that make your

hope grow beards.


on your head you carried

packets of lies

crossing the hills in the cemetery.


in your pocket you homed a

stranger, offer him a bed to lay

and steal from the bank of his soul at night.


& you named yourself a synonym to death

but remember, as you chase life it refels back,

rejecting the offer you offered.


note, loneliness is not an excuse

to stay alive. and remember greed

is a sweat of the devil.
