lackadaisical love letter

by Zan


forwarding this loathsome love note to the sultan of subterfuge:

this neurosis is a continuing nightmare you nurtured,

you taunted my paranoia and my soul you captured.

the one sided love affair with a doppelganger was  indeed a clever ruse,

so I thank you (not) for the laconic emotional abuse.
