And She Cankered

Her smile,
a vicious spell of abhorrence,
mucking the shades of her eyes
with some past loathe,
often cankered
the helplessness of her smudged mind

and all this happened
in some subconscious state of her mind
without she being aware of her atrocities
she plummeted to the world around her

Or probably she waited unknowingly
to find that one person
who could look beyond the murk,
the smirk,
the superficial thoughts
into her deviant soul
