HANDPICKINGS

By Anniliyah Richardson—

Create no deceptions. Believe the lies that are to be told behind in the eyes that share a darker truth. Whether to relay the message through the blind subliminal, everything soon comes to light.

Granted, turning the hands that lays in the sun too long drying up of common decency. Let this remind you of what waits in the grass. An opponent that is only good with the secrets that are kept to themselves.
