Fay Slimm






Love only grows near introspection
and fades when a thought
becomes deformed.

When lies are perfected for deflection
ultimate ruin of truth
breeds disorder.

Nothing muddies love's complexion
more than a fake mask
of bent distortion.

Love demands but honest reflection
for its power to blossom
and trust adorn.

  • Classicmister

    A very complex but perceptive reflection on love. You manage to convey so much with few words,


    Thanks FAY ~ A great reflection ~ Yours BRIAN


    Great finishing stanza!

    Honesty is the best policy we've all heard before. Lies cause demise, I say.

    Great work that you are so capable at.

    Oh so true. If only writing such truths could bring them to our door.
    i live in hope.

    Very true words Fay, a great meaningful write.
