Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

Misty view from my window at daybreak

Ah... anyone who feels the knives of deceit stabbing again and again, and the distrust the scars leave, might understand the feelings behind this!


It's the lies I despise.
I get a feeling
words aren't revealing
something I see in your eyes.

It's the lies I despise.
Without any proof
I know the truth
is too easy to disguise.

It's the lies I despise.
Again and again,
since I don't know when,
a little piece of me dies.

It's the lies I despise.
I know what's wrong -
knew it all along.
Somehow I've become wise...

to the lies I despise.
The time has past,
our distance too vast.
We should say our goodbyes.

It's the lies I despies...

Hi Mystic Rose and Madd - I think the worst thing is that most people seem to have been hurt by someone who's lied to them/ deceived them. And so many people are left with the distrust that everyone else will hurt them.

Do so many people lie to each other? Guess they must do. There must be so many, to have so many recipients. But, doesn't that mean that those that are hurt by the lying, are also the ones doing the hurting?

Isn't that sooo sad...
