I took a nap ignoring the silent whispers,
The whispers woke me up from the continuous bickering,
How easy it was to lie and pretend taking a nap,
With every lie my nose got longer and my heart felt heavy,
I was told I am Pinocchio and if I lie I will have a longer nose,
I was lying to myself and looked away from how it felt to only love,
To only love and love where the feelings felt beautiful,
Not expecting anything but just that love for you which slithers through my entire system,
When I accepted that I can’t stop loving you,
I awoke with a perfect nose and my heart was still heavy,
But this time it’s heavy with unconditional love,
Let love lose and stop suppressing it said my heart…
Who wants a long nose!
