Love Reality

Cogs of grey membrane turning endlessly
Clutching memories slipping as if pulled by gravity
Endless thoughts and random theories
Midnight frantic dillusions and colourless visions
Stoic face or feigned smiles of fake platitutes
Dreary gloom set over a now vacant and debauched moon
Kiss her hard and pretend to swoon, words rehearsed
to make her believe the absurd
Coerced emotions injected and fabricated and left to bake
Words of affection carefully crafted to prevent rejection
What a strange, paradoxical and theatrical production love is.
Out, out damn honesty. Rehearse the script. Tis not real,
but is what it is ...the thespian wins and the honest fool
partakes of naught, then becomes the understudy to
learn the craft.

Tell them what they want to hear, is reality because if we were all honest with each other lots
Of us would be very upset at each other. Very nice poem! I am being honest.
Nice read, Canada...
Nice poem. I like the honesty. Thanks for sharing. Take care.
Very nicely written Boyshchrm.. one of your best I think.. reminds me of the words in a song..

Make them laugh, it comes so easy
When you get to the part
Where you're breaking my heart
Hide behind your smile, all the world loves a clown
[Just make 'em smile the whole world loves a clown]
Wish you well, I cannot stay
You deserve an award for the role that you played [role that you played]
No more masquerade, you're one lonely star
[One lonely star and you don't know who you are]

All the world is a stage
And everyone has their part
But how was I to know which way the story'd go
How was I to know you'd break
[You'd break, you'd break, you'd break]
You'd break my heart

Well Mychelle I not only think you have to bend the
truth but be deceiptfull. I don't like that idea, but
it seems to be what woman want to hear. (Unfortuneately)
Truth is stanger than fiction and most often rejected by
woman where a contrived lie is believed...what can I say more.
Thanks for your comment...dunno doh frustrated
Thanks so much EarlGreyT.

really like this, it's true you can convince someone if you say it enough - but only briefly, then reality cuts in, moping
thanks for sharing these wine
Hi, boyshchrm6,
Interesting concept. Yet, without honesty, there is no reality. Without reality, there is no love - only illusions. Clutching memories slipping as if pulled by gravity captured me. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for your comment CarolJoyce. It is
appreciated and sorry for the late reply.
I was busy devil grin
Thanks LadyBee for your insight.
angel cool peace
Thanks Gnj4u for your input. Well theres pros and cons
for everything. I just get dissillusioned with
the truth sometimes I guess. Best to live in an alternate
Reality.confused comfort hug cool angel bouquet
