The Assassination of Love

"Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time." - Pablo Picasso 


It's not possible for addiction and love to live together very long before they attack one another. Addiction to self, to substances, to work, to anything, will soon drain from love its very life and leave the shell of an empty relationship as evidence of the crime. Love rarely is able to defend itself from such an attack. Tragically the perpetrator isn't found till long after the crime has been committed.  Many are the deaths love has suffered at the hands of the fiend of addiction. Do your lover a favor, quit now while you still have love breathing between you.

Glory Undone - A woman succumbs to vice

"She's not happy about the life she is living but to jump through the hoop would mean to succumb to death." - Kit Williams


I saw her give up and fall to addictions vice...

Your legs splayed in graphic way
Wanting to leave this world, come and play
Scoring your hits under the dark world
Flying, inhibition burned in a pink pearl
Reaching to touch your body magnificent
I'm held at bay by your habit's descent
Changed from a fondled object of desire
Picking at your curves that soft skin on fire
Tears they are my lover as you fade from sight
Pleasure was ours until you hid in your night”
- Nightfall, D.M.W. Sager

Glory is undone as the softness turns to a melted waste of surrender

Gone is the shine from the jewel of your womanhood

Shame now clothes a golden soul tarnished by wantonness

Laying down your fight as your thoughts of peace fall with fear

What's left now that you gave your glory to another?

Stained garments of unusual color adorn your nakedness

Dive into the murky river as it flows away

Perhaps your deeds will not settle on your life
Pressing back the past, recover your glory undone.
