Two-Edged, Two-Faced

Your words express what you believe
 Your voice is what you play you perceive 
  Yet, your words and voice might be naive

You need a card today 
 For you to use any day
  And whenever you want you can throw it away

You think everything is easy and simple
 But you never see one's dimple
  For all you care about is how to get rid of your pimple

Sometimes I woke alone along a lake
 With sunlight protecting my back
   And the wonderful breeze that always keeps me awake

You are two-edged
 You are two-edged
  I do not want you as a friend

For you are never truthful....
 You are never careful...

    I love this poem with its angry honesty and the fourth verse is a real gem. Thank you for all your lovely comments, which mean so much to me. Few things give greater pleasure than knowing you've made someone smile. Your friend, Nigel

    Ouch, I would not want to be the person you so skillfully describe. This a vengefully wonderful verse. Good rhyme scheme too. Nice job.

    this is a good poem, it is true many people let us down in this world saying the things they think we want to here but in this life not many friends are not sincere, there is a saying that if we find just one true friend in the world we are lucky because many are two faced many do not tell the truth but thats why I stick to my one true friend Jesus the one and only true friend in our lifetime, amen, blessings to you from diane
