The Dagger

The Dagger

A Poem by Anastasia Purvis
"

Free Verse. I was feeling cathartic and misenthropic. Ah, Love, Sweet Love. Enjoy!

"
Trust is giving someone the Dagger and believing they won't use it. It's placing your heart on a cutting board and leaving it open, exposed and bloody, but hopeful that there's one person on this over-populated, filthy planet that won't strike you down in your vulnerable state.
So here's to you, the One who got away, unscathed,  lied to my face, took the Dagger and with a gleam in your eye and devious smile stabbed me in the back, sliced and diced my heart, then served it sauteed with a side of onions and peppers. 
Don't forget the hot sauce. 
Bon Appétit.

Wow! Ok... Ok... Let me digest this first... The poem was originally about trust and being wise with it... And then...this comes!
" then served it sauteed with a side of onion and peppers."
"Don't forget the hot sauce."
"Bon Appétit."

Lol... this poem was a treat to read! You never fail to impress your readers! :)

Oh yeah... it should be "serve" instead of "served" I believe :)

Keep it up! I also just noticed it was free write xD xoxo

Thank you, sweetheart. xxx
Ouch! Betrayal served up with a bitter (not sweet) sauce. One hopes that the object of the poem chokes on the culinary delight.
