“All disguised in the coat of lies.”

Hey lust,
don’t scream your honey-dripping
tales and phrases into my ear.

I will not watch and listen,
those shifting images of sin sent 
through your network to my network,
all disguised in the coat of lies
to gain the entrance within. 

You’ll still try to hack my veins
and drip your poison on my brain,
I’m far from scared,
love is my remedy and my vaccine. 


Thank you very much for any help!
