Do I deceive myself?
Does this thin veil protect me,
From your copious attempts,
To whisk me away into the night,
Penetrate my covering,
Steal my heart,
And leave me vulnerable?
Or do I deceive you?
Hoping that you’ll instigate the affair,
So that I can watch,
As you search hopelessly,
Allowing you to believe,
That my heart is actually hidden here?
Fandango’s One-Word Challenge: Copious
Word of the Day Challenge: Instigate
This isn’t really my style, but I had some revealing thoughts recently, about the roles that I’ve played in some of my ‘tragic’ love stories. I guess it’s true what they say… it really DOES take two to tango.
It’s not always beautiful to see the truth about ourselves, but we’ll never be able to change what’s wrong until we do.
Anyway, I thought the poem went well with my art. This was an accidental piece, and it lit a fire in me to try some new techniques… so I hope to do some more experimenting today.
That’s about all for now—
Peace & Love Everyone!
