What is charmed

Can still be toxic

And all that is sweet

May still be poison

Trust must come slowly

For human flaws

and human frailty

make fools of us all

Wreaking destruction

in every resting place

Scorching the Earth

before us and behind us

Slowing the healing so many of us seek

Killing kindness

With every venomous word ~ Caroline A. Slee
