Poem: Favorite Line

My name is Candice Ballinger, and I am a published author and poet.


Licking my lips in vain,

my life is so famous

you just might know my name

I'm wrapped in silk

and dredged in hell

living a lie,

and pretending to be okay

that has to be my favorite line,

laughing at the shear pain

never left to be the same.
