Artifice

Posted by Pye in Poetry | 10:09am


how much do you know?
a layer or two
a half-baked assumption
without any clue
my image in your mind
spurious, untrue

why do you talk?
with words you don't mean
a lifelong pretense
from behind a screen
faceless masquerade
robotic machine

what do you care?
for the hurt you inflict
deep, hurtful words
the choicest, hand-picked
lay open the wounds
so carefully licked

when would you stop?
this amusing game
end the deceit
the shifting of blame
let me mourn fully
the girl i became



Current Mood: Gloomy
Current Music: Celtic harp

    hi...just began reading your space but had to stop at Colon Parenthesis. Reading further would destroy its effect on me and dont want that to happen. You are really good.

    subliminalGuru, thank you. Colon Parenthesis just came out right. :)

    fallen angel, hi. Thank you. But kenny was different... this is as different from kenny as kenya.

    Jai, what was that about boys and girls? You mean the differences are to account for the heartaches? Or the different points of view...?

    Lily, thank you. :)
