paperback reader…

paperback reader

her visions
of life
and
of love
were taken
from the pages
stored
under her bed
well
read chapters
on romance
and
passion
lustful words
taken as
instructions
on reality
becoming
a sacred text
a holy book
for her existence
and
behavior
under the sheets
and like
all
lies repeated
belief
becomes
all
that one
sees

  1. That is an incredibly powerful verse. What jumped out at me are these lines:

    .”..and like
    all
    lies repeated
    belief
    becomes
    all
    that one
    sees.”

    Indeed what we start believing in colours our perspective and we start accepting all that which aligns with that belief as we ignore everything else which contradicts. Over time, what started off as an assumption becomes a fact for us and we start judging everything based on this.

  2. Lies can become ones reality, but the truth lies always in the heart. Until the lies are unraveled, the pretense must continue.

  3. Adore this so…your words, as always, are so enjoyable to partake in…grazie for sharing love! Hugs, Bells xx
