Poison
Deadly, harmful
Numbing, slowing, killing
Just like distrust and deception
Toxic…

“I am convinced that human life is filled with many pure, happy, serene examples of insincerity, truly splendid of their kind-of people deceiving one another without (strangely enough) any wounds being inflicted, of people who seem unaware even that they are deceiving one another.” ― Osamu Dazai, No Longer Human
