Beautiful Art


Pink brush strokes
fanned over blue,  just right.
Ships glide over
light ripples
of dusty grey velvet
blended perfectly
with shades of sunrise.
A work of exquisite beauty
fading into night.
Traffic swishes past
unseeing, uncaring,
untouched by yet another
masterpiece.

Untold Truth


Like bad novels
some people’s stories
are half truth but mostly fiction,
names changed
to protect the guilty.

Secrets hidden
behind lies,
deceit
and pretense.

Wasted stories
with no ending at all,
just more lies
to bury the past
deeper into
their fictitious present.

Do I care,
does it matter.
How does truth
embedded in lies survive.

I don’t know.

Thwarted

 

Like an opera star
who trips on the top step of the stage,
or a pianist
who sits at a locked piano,
a guitar
with broken strings

some stories will never be told
because
truth is too scary,
uncertain
and far too unusual
for some people to admit to.
