A Sort of Love

Love-Heart-3d-WallpaperThey mock me with distraction
These turners of a phrase
With their fragmentary smiles
That betray a kind of derision
A legion of platitudes
Designed to manipulate
To function as a sort of love
Born from death and decay
And a willingness to deny
These warning signs
This lack of coherent sympathy
The need to identify with pain
Searing and indiscriminate
A way to delay the inevitable
But it floats on seas of glass
Impenetrable as a fortress
The language of disruption
Couched in particularities
Bathed in functional lies
Fearing the consequence
That comes with realization
Of a transitory feeling
A fluctuating abnormality
That looks an awful lot like love
But never can be.
