"Life is way too short to keep friends that break your heart. " Quote _by Constance
A fig leaf coverup, a friendship that was just a figment; a charade with an ultimate breakup, for it was a friendship with no pigment. Evil hidden by a thick cloak, your camouflage of friendship- I now revoke; your false mask of kindness has been broke. Oh, I was blind, as your charade into my life twined; you played with my accepting mind. Now, your ugly true colors are revealed- and I cleanup, I pulled back this fig leaf figment; and all tendrils of fake friendship- I choke, in my life you are now just a distasteful segment. _____________________ March 29, 2022 Poetry/Rhyme/Fig Leaf Copyright Protected, ID 03-1444-225-29 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Theme - chosen - Fig Leaf Written for the Standard contest, This or That, Vol 11 sponsor, Edward Ibeh, Judged 04/22/2022 Third Place

Constance, this is such an expressive, moving poem. It sends a powerful message about so-called friends. Excellent use of "fig leaf" as a symbol. Janice
