Are lies beautiful?  

White-lies that trill? 

Masking darkness, 

Tumbling fights. 

I know not your demons, 

Only mine. 

Lies, beautiful? 

Is the truth blind? 

People desire lies, 

Crave —

Drops of poison. 

Evil makes life, 

Sickly ripe. 

Are people capable, 

Of goodness, faith? 

He chuckled, 

Souless eyes void. 

Offering opium, 

Ambrosia for fools.

  1. One man’s lie is another’s treasure!

    Well done Mandi – I like the feeling and flow – the words powerful – the images created clear to the mind, without needing particular details. Definitely flows here, with strength and force.

    Thanks for playing the Sunday writing prompt 🙂 And I hope you have a wonderful week 🙂
