“You can tell some lies, about the good times that you’ve had”…

Sat in the photo…
Entombed in a frame…
Eyes staring blankly…
Her view always the same…
One magical moment…
Captured for all time…
With no context to spoil it…
No hint of her crimes…
 
Just a simple picture…
Telling a thousand words…
But not telling her story…
The reality unheard…
With her painted smile…
Covering up the truth…
All her acts of passion…
And the folly of her youth…
 
And then she was gone…
In the blink of an eye…
Years passed like seconds…
On her journey to the sky…
And all these years later…
In the frame she remains…
Stuck in that moment…
Looking just the same…
 
Like a magical curse…
Within a haunting spell…
Holding all those secrets…
That she could never tell…
Just what was going on…
Behind that frozen smile…
Her surface unscratched…
Hiding her complex lifestyle…

Where nothing was ever…
As it first seemed…
In her parallel world…
Full of lies and of schemes…
She smiles in the photo…
Yet she could never inside…
And her secret she kept…
Till the day that she died…

  1. Bravo J!!! 🙂

    And who is to blame…
    Of her pain and shame…
    It’s not herself alone…
    Also the one that calls her his own…
    Who viewed her from afar…
    Never noticing the imprinted scar…
    Making her desire…
    And play the fire…
