House of Cards

House of Cards

A Poem by J. K. Beach

 

She was an architect of lies

Building her house of cards

On the broken glass foundation

And bent steel reinforcement

of my rose colored glasses

I really liked your opening line, Jeff, and how you carried through to the colored glasses. Sometimes when those ideas pop into our heads, its hard to get them down fast enough, but they often work themselves out.

It's really good to see you back where you belong! Take care!

Lucky in love but only if it's in the cards. It's a gamble and when it crashes it crashes.
Time for new glasses? :)

I'm glad it's all intact. Glasses and heart. :)
WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
Proving yet again, love is blind, not to mention deaf and dumb, even with steel reinforcements. Tremendously clever viewpoint, I like how your mind works.
