Dream Of Lies

Dream Of Lies
Dream Of Lies

Desire. Games. Betrayal.


Purple circles

Set around the eyes

Fixed by a prosaic mind

--------------------

Had me in stitches

Now laughing petition

--------------------

Blow your nose

But that won’t clean it up

--------------------

Toxicant words drip

From your honey lips

What believable lies

--------------------

A meticulous craftsman

Debonair tales

Seduce my senses

--------------------

Thoughts shift

In your presence

Lost in illusion

--------------------

Reality with no closure

Horror stained

An image of you

Beautifully put fear, pain and realization in your verse! I can connect and relate to your images of a liar... a heart-breaker

Great poetry!

This reads painfully. Deceit and lies add up to infidelity by a partner? This paints an ugly picture, yet the imagery is there and shouts out the hurt. Nicely done, I felt your message. Voted Up.

Great poem about a false lover. I really like "From your honey lips, what believable lies." Enjoyed and voted up.

Love the way you wrote with fluidity using words as oximorons as a guide to get the message across. How else does one tell lies and make us believe them, that to guise them as beauty. Only the wise and mindful know the diff.

Feel free to read and rate my versatile hubs:)

Hi Vincent, this is an old piece, Ive decided to publish a few of them here on hubpages, now that I have come to peace with myself through accepting and letting go of my foolishness. Im really glad I have managed to turn pain into poem! Appeciate your vote, especially coming from you.

Rahul0324 thankyou for your comment, appreciate it. There is healing in expressing your mess on paper, as poets we can always turn something ugly into perhaps something beautiful, well at least I hope I have here.
