A strand of sorrow

like there is no tomorrow

reflected in your eyes

a subliminal grin

above your chin

yields no compromise

it is but a shadow

a shielded lie

that forever

resides in the rise

of the emotional ocean

and the coveted devotion

holding you down


a watery charade

you've perfectly made

to mask the white lies

you've gently laid

down to sleep

within your Sea so deep

swimming beneath

the tides

    Lovely poem...

    "a shielded lie"

    that dances in colorful wings

    a water fairy in disguise

    camouflaged in perfect frost

    the ugly truth behind velvet curtains

    so flashy and flowing

    tempting those with seeking eyes

    oh look! who lies underneath there?

    a grinning Rumpelstiltskin

    with a twist in one corner

    and a pinkie finger

    one man's white lie

    is another's black lie...
