Deception.

Deception.

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola
"

....

"
Scary secret stunning the sacred eyes,
sparkling, twinkling, hiding behind the light.
The glowing bent around the lustrous feigning,
looking real, bewitching the helpless sight.

Minds engrossed in a false appearance
pseudo reality that rainbows human's heart,
souls manipulated by this glittering doom
that calls for attention of whom to blow.

"Hey!" She shouted, "here I am."
with her tongue bathing in pool of lies.
There she lies, waiting in ambush,
Let he who is wise beware of her art.

True...we need to be wise see through the lies and know that the line between good and bad is ever so thin...🌹

Thank you so much, Kelly.
That powerful review is really powerfully constructive.
It is said beauty is only skin deep. The lady here described seems to personify that saying. She comes across
as a shallow attention seeker and manipulator who uses her physical beauty to trap the unwary. Without doubt, she'll find some poor soul.

You see it well, John.
One have to be very careful in order not to fall into her trap.

You’ve captured it beautifully, the essence of the smiling siren who can tweak a man’s heart from his chest. Your piece is haunting, delicious and delightful, with elegant verbs, and a precious mix of classic and oral tradition in the feel of it. Deception can kill, don’t let it happen to you, no matter how beautiful she may appear to be...

Brilliant!!!

Yayyyyy...! Thanks...here goes then.
First 2 lines show dynamic word choices for interesting overall sound with strong alliteration -- great opening. Line 3 is a powerful analogy stated in imagery (the meaning of SHOW instead of tell). V3 is a nice departure from the rest of the poem becuz you bring this deceiver out into the open, alive with dialogue that pops. This ending leaves me with the palpable feeling that there's a deceiver about to pounce (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you so much, Margie.
Your reviews are always amazing.
some paint, some write poetry, some dance...and some dance around the truth...creating deceiving colors and words.
Yes, the ambush....the trusting, the unwary...they walk right into the traps.

You are right sir.
Nobody knows when exactly he walks in trap. One has to be careful.
Deception is a shocker. If you are a trusting soul and you are deceived by a web of lies, it can have a lasting effect. Well written Kay.
