Tell me in rhyme
again
guising the truth
and deception
can no longer fool me
You anchor my ears to the ducts of your tears
but forget
all the years you misruled me
~
Your satellite
lifts at my spirit
as blissfulness orbits my woes
My universe slides to the blinded-most side
Your Side-Show
blooms
under nose
~
We step past a puddle in moonlight
conversing
"It may hold a star"
Do I comprehend
or merely
pretend
reflections seem more than they are
~
Harvested reason
plucked freshly this season
shrunk down nearly past subatomic
Then
whys befall lies that mystify eyes
when twisting
unties
astronomic
~
Misinformation
in rhyme
imperceptible crime
and emotion slides easy but lingers
In conclusion...
confusion
whether truth or delusion
~
I'm wrapped
around one
of two fingers
~~~

Ah Rex, life is no guarantee of happiness, even though we may pursue it with gusto. You being "wrapped / around one / of two fingers" lets me know that you still have that happiness dream, as well you should.

You've got that right Jerry... I give my head a shake while I smile, then keep right on dreaming

didn't get all the expressions of it (one of the two fingers ?), i feel that we have to go ahead, that life is not so easy, but we respond as long as we breath, quite nice reading

Love this poem! The flow and rhyme is to die for! Felt like a song to me. This may be my favorite of your writings. ~L

Yann... I don't always catch the correct wave either when I read another's writing. The two fingers I could be wrapped around would be either the little pinky or the middle plunger

Lori... I'm really glad you liked this one. It does sing out a little and raises about an octave in the last line I did write a song this year... it's in the Holiday section. Don't think anyone's seen it yet hint
