The Hurt Files

The Hurt Files

A Poem by duff

"

People lie all the time

Everyday it’s different

Whether hiding or not

It contains a hurt level

A boomerang of trust

Never returning home

The play reeling inside

A staged permanency

Disguised in normality

Facial transformation

Blood all over the wall

Answers to a cold bed

Catch the mouse first

Before the guilt moves

"Catch the mouse first/ before the guilt moves"
Somebody got the cheese...but we are too late if we are deceived by the lies of someone.
A trust is broken...the blood of it all over the wall, and the bed is cold...as you penned.
And once gone, that bed is a "staged permanency"
trust can never be regotten....

You're welcome! :)
As always, telling a story with imagery that pops, tons of originality, & yet also letting go so the reader can take a few flying leaps off from your ideas. The hardest part about observing such hurtful traits in others is to recognize that I also have these traits. I probably hurt & disappoint people all the time with my less-than-true constructs (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I like this a lot...lol. So true. I am not sure how to fix it, seems to be a human norm. Great social comment and wonderful writing.
