life lies

i know the talent of my mind

is making you arrogant

i have it .....

and there it is.....

the gift of being able

to dress up costume jewelry

as if it were real

so i go on

and forget

the costume was

only for show

then old winter 

sneaks in ....

and the sun

turns her face away

how ironic....

i think of winter

as  you.

    Congrats on the selection. Finally, someone has something to say about personal matters, and has the style and imagination to put together a first rate poem. daver

    I love this poem. It’s got a lot truth, but what’s the irony of winter and make up? I believe that it’s good to be natural than making up This piece is awesome… keep your passionate pen walking and working on your poetry pad. Great you!

    Great writing! this speaks loudly to me and how clever your metaphors are. Those last three lines sum it up exactly right. Awesome. Love Christie
