within the blank pages of unwritten love

within the blank pages of unwritten love

if love means letting go
   i will walk away slow
dressed in only the pretty parts of me
but I'm far uglier than you could ever be
lies...
    lies are for the common man
an artist tells stories, 
you my love, are an artist
    playing muse upon a pedestal 
that graces the fountain 
      from which I drink inspiration
             convinced 
that the difference 
between stories
                 and lies
lies within the blank pages
  of unwritten love

Stories, lies...
Reasons, excuses...
It never really ends up mattering in the end, I think.
It's still hurt and deceit, whatever the chosen labels. And the pain is the same.

Quite true, sir Chocolate. Quite true.
What a write, Papaya!
Lies are for the common man
an artist tells stories.
There is a lot unsaid but one can feel the depth.
The closing lines go deep.
Thank you for this excellent craft.

Bam! Two separate ideas converging in the closing. Well written and perfectly ended.

Thanks Shannon! :) Really appreciate that!
your last poem made me smile, and this has ripped my heart.. there is a haunting hollowness to your words, at least this is how it affected me... lies are lies, even if the artist uses fancy words or colorful colors... but I think even more than the "difference" between lies and stories, as true as this is and also some nicely written lines, what made me wince even more was the "but I am far uglier than you could ever be".... this was like the knife going in and then being twisted before pulled out...

lies and or stories very often leave us feeling ugly and at fault, not to mention alone...

Ana this is a very moving poem and one that will stay with me for a long time...

The above lines. I could write a epic poem from. You create sad and lonely visions. Leaving love behind and breaking our own heart. Thank you Ana for sharing the amazing poetry.

Hi Bev, thanks! :)
pages torn from the skins of Tree's shouldnt be waisted, if they are taken from its owner, than it should be penned with magical words and emotions. And there lay the spokenless pages, with out a dot to atleast give the page a tickle, oh you should have gone a long time.
