Get Honest Dude

I hear your voice, clear as a bell 
I know your story quiet by heart  
The pretty shades of gray you fell 
Are counterfeit inside your mouth 

It’s wee bit white, that little lie  
But some of it rings fine n’ true 
The part I buy, just brings a sigh 
The latter though is nothing new 

If only you were straight with me 
I would not mind your magnitude  
Your falsehood stings perfidiously 
So out with it, get honest, dude!

    Love it! Honesty is important in a relationship, but I think most people are not entirely honest. And I have found that those who feel the need to repeatedly proclaim what an honest person they are, are the ones to watch out for. (Line 2 - should it be "quite" instead of "quiet"?)

    Honesty and trust are cornerstones of any relationship, especially love! A fine didactic pentameter for those who love are seeking, dearest Mystic Rose! Wonderful!

    Its vital to trust your perception. Sometimes we perceive the truth and at times we are inadvertantly beguiled by our own misperception, misunderstandings, just the way experience goes. The best we can do is to be utmost honest with ourselves and take it from there Mystic. This poem is very valuable, and gets me thinking about hypocrisy. So mote it be...J.A.B.

    I hope he has the courage to be honest! You asked pretty nicely! He better not make you ask a second time. Or Else! (a woman scorned is not a pretty site.) *lol*
