    false faces…
    sensors of insecurities from a distance-
    in an instant magnetic eyes lead gullible hearts to broken fates
    mouths drip honey sweet lyrics that
    slither in ears and gas souls
    choking them with pain

    do misery have a conscious,
    does it sleep peacefully?


    deceit…

    how does it feel while deceiving,
    is remorse in its DNA or does it sip away on the deed like fine wine
    until intoxicatingly satisfied?

    envy…

    the undercover foe
    disguised in friends and loved ones
    waiting to pounce at a moments notice

    do misery have a conscious
    does it sleep peacefully?


    guard your heart
    but not with all your might
    for the genuine face of love is out there
    hoping to be invited in

    so...

    leisurely
    consider suitor’s advances
    cause time can reveal dishonesty’s
    true intentions

    do misery have a conscious
    does it sleep peacefully?

    I LIKE the way you presented this! :toast:


    But, no, misery and envy do not have consciences.

    And they sleep very peacefully once they have disturbed your own sleep and infected you with their poison.

    Well said, Sister Coco! You are PREACHIN' up in heah today!

    And, yes, I agree with you about the love....You can't "give" or "receive" with a closed hand."

    I like how you engaged in Misery as if it's a person like a tooth fairy! Sleeping well, and causing chaos onto others, while it's sleepy like a baby somewhere! Good poem!! :)

    I often wonder if people who do, not-so-nice-things regret them.
    Anywho, this was birthed from some people issues I was experiencing
    and this was how I relieved myself of ‘em.

    Can’t allow another’s meanness to alter our disposition. :)

    Thank you CherryB and Emerald, for taking time to read and
    give feedback, its encouraging and I appreciate it BIGTIME! :bowdown:

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Real Truth!




    Great expression poetess cocobutterskyn,

    Below is the part that touches my heart and mind, you didn't close the door, even though you had justification(false faces, deceit and envy) starring you in the face...the audacity of hope...Peace In my sister friend, for real!

    guard your heart
    but not with all your might
    for the genuine face of love is out there
    hoping to be invited in​
