Woven Deceit

I trace the fibre
of each of your lies,
note the intricacy
of their overlapping –
marvel at the depths
of your scheming,
still suffering aftershock
of deception’s braid.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Oh V.J. this is just so incredibly powerful! Especially those last 2 lines, “still suffering aftershock
    of deception’s braid.” You are a greatly gifted wordsmith my friend! 😀 ❤
