He found solace in her crooked, malformed smile.
He hired convicts to put others in jail.
His website crashed with his likability and charm.
He laid his heart at her indifferent feet
Who are you when the lights are off?
He took her number, knowing he’d never call.
She returned from the engagement without a ring.
Together they destroyed the foundation of their partnership.
She leapt headlong for the ledge and missed.
The woman coddled her grown son into infancy.
He fanned the flames until they consumed him.
He jumped across the chasm and into fatherhood.
The moon rose in triumph over the sun.
He got elected again despite being entirely competent.
She screamed for her life. She’s still screaming.
The monster used his wealth against her health.
His reputation was made by a lying fool.
He failed to save her. She saved him.
He followed his heart to his utter ruin.
The child grew until he blocked the stars.
