The seamstress of doom

poses provocatively

with full-rounded breasts

Trust – her enemy

while lust is her currency

Her machinations woven

with the immaculate accuracy

of master tailors

-disguised as empathy

Your pain is her fuel

which she uses to mediate

between her draining power

and your troubles

which flame with fire

-sparked by angst’s wicker
