Day 3 - NaPoWriMo 2013- A Lie
So, I said no challenges. Ironically, yesterday’s challenge was to write about “a lie”. As is drove home tonight this “little irony” found its way in ...
A lie, is a lie, is a lie, is a lie ...
Your subtle omissions
The empty spaces in-between
A simple testament
To darker reaches, places unseen
Swept away by illusion
In the heat of passions lurks a hunger
A voracious emptiness, hard to contain
Lost in a rage of emotion
Choices need to be made
To believe again, rekindle my pride
Or slink away, victim to another's crime
Whiskey burns away the pain
Yet here I remain
No greater a man, only rounded at the edges
Wiser, addicted to a memory
This pain, it feeds me
With a self-indulgent indignation
It manifests a denial
Gives me reprise
Wouldn't I have done the same?
