How often...

How often...

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental.

How often
those lies cross your lips,
invading the space between us.

How often
my veinless wrists grasp
onto the thin edges of your skin.

How often
I am, speechless
at the mystic aura
that surrounds you.

How often
I am, deceived
by the soft, brutal waves
that shake me to the core.

How often
I surrender;
to your lost touches
and woven lies...

How amazing it is to learn so much by merely reading between the lies.. seeing them for what they are. Wonder if perhaps you, the writer, didn't want to let the YOU accept the truth.. 'I am, speechless ~ at the mystic aura ~ that surrounds you.'

When one meets an imagination that creates magic with language, one can easily be deceived!

I think the mind often plays games or maybe we are prone to denial...

WOW! Very powerful! Your writing is always beautiful & meaningful . . . but not so much focused into a detailed punch in the gut message. This one is very well crafted & structured & relatable to the core of one's heart (((HUGS)))

Lies that invade the space between two people...excellent description. I liked this very much, but one question - why are your wrists "veinless"?

Hope all is well, Yumna...! Been a minute.
This had me evading the space between my mind and the lies that bind me in kind... Mystic auras and woven waves... How often, indeed... Vein-less wrists grabbing your thin skin... Dreadfully horribly wonderful imagery... Experimentally penned... (As always)

Very tactile Yumna.
I loved the phrase 'veinless wrists' !
I think evaded would be better if it were 'invading'...
