Sweet Disaster

by lynnkennison

There’s good in you

But you fight it

Every step

Under guard

Pure and tainted  

A mixed composite


You pretend

Everything’s great

Life is fine

More the opposite

Away from others

Confusion dines


A sweet disaster

A perfect storm

Sugar-coated ruin

Against the rocks

A dark horizon


Everyone loses

Count yourself

You’re a mess

Love nobody else
