Soothing Lies :

Entry for PoAttic 4


Can you come back,  dearest!

Just once more?

Lying on the harsh surface of reality,

I wish to hear the soothing lies,

Honeyed words of endearment,

Deep in the balmy valley of falsehood,

Cooing words that heart wants  to hear,

Breaking open the gates of melancholy,

Running away from the world of gloom,

No matter how much it will hurt me again,

My wistful dreams carry me still to 

Valley of amore  where depression blooms,

A haze of nostalgia grips my mind,

Smiling through tears I watch your gaze,

Your serene smile and glowing face,

Who could believe what you promised,

Were  just lies  heart wishes to hear again and again.


What do you think?
