There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
Well captured. We sometimes do this to--and for--each other.
That's just being economical with the truth . . . lolMy grandmother would be hopping up and down for she used to say:"Be the matter what it may - always speak the truth!"Did we take her advice? . . . . lol
elemental, and excellent ~
I've told the lonely lie .... Power in a few words isn't easy, you did it!
Double lies still hardly even make half a truth, do they?
They sure don't Shay.
A little lie can be okay to let fly
Sometimes its just so much easier that way...not necessarily better, just easier.
Because sometimes we don't want to burden others with our sorrows ~
Sometimes words aren't the medicine and as Hedge said above...I agree, easier.
'We always said that "The first liar doesn't stand a chance."I sometimes use the one, "No, I’m fine" when I don't want to talk about my ails.....
You managed to tell of two bad lies in just a few lines.. Very clever - and yes I can see this happening.
One story, two perspectives. I have been on both sides. Well captured, Mary. Makes us think twice when seeing it put like that in front of us.
Thanks for you comments everyone. I've visited you all and read your lovely lies now. :o)
such a powerful punch in such a short piece. That's a feat in itself. Well done and viva la
So short and beautiful. Loved it. :-)Greetings from London.
Oh I can see it. Wonderfully done!
Thank you everyone! xx
