They created illusion for themselves

Living out their fake lives

Even as the noose tightened

With each passing day

He, in his fast car

And skimmed funds

He ran from the drug Lords

They are fast on his tail.

Where all was illuminated through her languid gaze

Fake, starry aura induced

From needle pricks

That zig-zagged

Through her veins

Until the glass fell

And shattered in the cold silence.

Such a dodgy, hard and wild bunch,

They give Alyssa the shivers.

Shivers sped down her spine,

When she looked into his flinty eyes,

They looked hard and unfriendly.
