HOW DO YOU HEAL?

Once upon a time you carried a burden and I was your only embrace. You forced yourself into my comfort and grabbed all you could. Your gluttony spared none of me. All you left was the shell Where there once was heat only the cool of contempt. But how do you heal swine? How does…

THE FALL
