gentle lies

I never found truth
to be gentle
lies, on the other hand
are pleasing because
they only tell us
what we want to hear


Yesterday’s prompt was “gentle lies”
At times I take the liberty to twist or stretch the meaning somewhat
Helps to expand my thinking
Bending the rules slightly ;-)

    1. Thank you for that information Mike. My writing style and thinking is very raw but it is my instinct that guides me. I really appreciate your feedback. “Poetic License” has such a dignified vibration :)

  1. :-) it is hard to comment truthfully about this poem… If I say something pleasing, you might think it a lie and me pandering to what you want to hear… so, I am going to try and think of something not so gentle to say… Bravo!


  2. Dear Sonya,

    Your bending of the rules contributes to your writings and to our enjoyment of them. I would argue that bending the rules is a necessary skill.

    Lies keep us asleep.

    This is a great poem. Thank you for it.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
