The Listener Of Lies

The Listener Of Lies

A Poem by Aurora .I.

Not understanding the true power of words


Whispers are the listeners of lies
Woven into an elaborate web with a million ties
Desperation for a certain desire
Make us join into
This tasteful disaster
So they hand us the shimmering web
And we begin to unravel and spread
Not questioning if this is the true everlasting silk
Or lying cheap cotton that will begin to wilt
But why question?
When the gift that is given
Is so succulent- like wine
And it feeds that fire-
Your desperate desire
The true harm of the words
Are glazed with that shimmering coating
While the web is truly the cotton wilting
It pretends to be everlasting
So you remain unaware of the poison you are telling

I really enjoyed reading this ;) I love the way you went from a web to cotton. It was great. I don't know about anyone else but, I know I probably never would have thought of that. Fantastic, this is good stuff.
