Simulacrum

A literacy theft of a line or phrase the facade, simulacrum of a writer creating a mirror image, deception . . . exact replica. The forgery of blood written heart and soul penning a likeness of me is plagiarism and taking credit for another's talent . . . is simulacrum! Like a night pirate you come to falsify to pass a line or a sweet phrase as your own you make some minor change as a delusion . . . making it your own. Your simulacrum of a writer is false you can cheat and pretend but will never be for you will never be this girls reflection . . . just a thief of words ! _______________________________ June 11, 2020 Poetry/Sapphic Stanza/Non Metrical/Simulacrum Copyright Protected, ID 20-1259-722-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Pick-A-Title, Vol. 19, Sapphic Stanza sponsor, Edward Ibeh Third Place

Tania, thanks for the visit and comment, sadly it is true, I like many have been the victim of plagiarism in the past, think it has stopped but whenever we put our words on line it is the gamble we take _Constance
