mutation.

the lies tumbled
from his lips
so effortlessly,
and i swallowed;
begging, gagging
for more.

anything he offered;
i was hostage
to his charm;
hostage to an old love;
he promised
would return.

if only i
was patient.
i waited long enough.
and when returned,
the love had grown
hard and dismissive;
and the lies mutated.
