The Candle

The Candle

The weather turned not quite cold

but wet and chilly, blustery my Mom would say

Reading in my favorite chair by the window

I added a single white taper to my side table

Not warming, but causing a more cozy feeling

as I continued to read

 

The flickering light began to make me sleepy

as I stopped reading and found myself

drawn to that single flame

I must have dozed because the next thing

I knew it was dark outside and the flame

reflected in the window

 

Looking around things were different

My house …

My room …

But different

Everything appeared a wavy reflection

as I looked across the room

The clock was not in its normal place

and the time didn’t seem to be correct

 

A whispered voice called to me

Telling me that time shifted and to

go with the flow …

Enjoy the peacefulness of the

golden candle light until

time shifts once again

I was told …

When the shift happened

I was returned to my world …

My reality …

 

A sudden chill ran through me

and looking around everything

had returned to normal …

Yet …

Things were not the same

And …

Never would be again …

Wronged

My life was completely

changed by one wrong

move …

a wrong decisions …

misjudging people and

believing they were

something different from

what they really are

 

Living a lie not only

keeps a person on

the constant defensive

but causes untold and

unexpected influences

on people being lied to …

lied about …

making reality a

universe of untruths

and trust to be

altered forever …

Dishonest Love – Day 14 April PAD

Leave a comment

Dishonest Love

I work so hard

to be real…

truthful…

honest…

 

But…

 

In reality it

is too hard

at times to do

 

To be absolutely

Honest…

Truthful…

sometimes is

to hurt those

we love

damage them

 

I’m not talking

about lying to them

But…

just keeping things…

painful things…

hurtful things…

shielded from these

sensitive people

 

That is the life

of some … to

take all the

hurt…

the pain…

the unpleasantness

of the world

and …

shield those who

are not strong

 

That kind of

dishonesty is a

strange form

of Love…

Day 14 is a “Two for Tuesday” – a double prompt or an either/or prompt – an honest or dishonest poem

Misfit…

Misfit…

Always the fifth wheel

Ignored…

Unwanted…

 

Looking from the

outside in she no

longer wants to

be a part of

what she sees

 

Realization that not

fitting in any longer

is to her advantage

 

Those are not the

people who will

be good for her

Masks

Masks…

We all wear them

Some hide more than others

 

Some give a true glimpse

of the person wearing it

Others totally obscure and

create a different persona

 

No one really sees anything

They all want to be…

To project…

Something they are NOT

 

Yet…

 

Each mask…

Each wearer…

Has a crack that lets

their soul seep through

 

Am I the only one

who has the Mask that

lets me

Really SEE…

Life…

What does it 
all mean…
matter…
 
Life…
Such a joke on
most of us…
most of the time…
 
We go our merry
little way thinking
everything is as it
should be
When…
in reality
Nothing…
is as we believe
 
The Universe sits back…
watches…
laughs…
as though we are its 
personal sitcom…
 
Which…
 
In reality
We ARE…

Decisions

You say what 
you think I
want to hear
So …
I will do what
you want me to
 
No more…
Tired of being
used…
deceived…
taken for granted…
ignored…
 
For now…
I need to go my
own way and
leave the past
behind
Take care of me
and not be concerned
about anything else
 
Perhaps…
when you realized
how you have made
me feel
what I have been
going through
all along
You…
will understand
my 
 
Decisions…

Sacred…

Uncertainty…
Trust issues
surfacing again
 
Why?
 
Someone once said,
“The Past is Prologue.”
which I find to be so true
 
The Past
creates issues of
Trust
which prove to
be today’s 
Reality
 
Is nothing 
Sacred?

Reality

I love my friends

They will do anything for me

AND

I am always there for them

What is totally…

and completely

Exasperating…

Confusing…

and leaves me

“at a loss”

for words

Are those friends

who have someone

in their life

who is completely

manipulating…

working them for

personal gain

AND

My friends are

completely clueless

as to what is

being done to them daily

Unfortunately…

Some people thrive on

Drama…and

unknowingly encourage

and enable their

manipulators

My only recourse…

is to be there and help

pick up the shattered pieces

of their soul when

Reality hits them

fully in the face
