White lies

Today I’ll pretend we stand on common ground

Extend our fingers and brush a truce

I’ll say you’re pretty

You’ll say I make you smile

We’ll tell ourselves the anger and resentment is gone


We loved each other,

Still do.


The bite marks, pulled hair, kicks and punches

Our symbols of affection, black opal bruises

Ruby tears of blood, tatted lace scratches

They made us beautiful once

We think they’ll do it again


Messiness was fun,

Still is.


We’ll build the make-believe castle from hay

Make boasts about the princes who will come

Fall madly in love with each other’s dreams

I’ll wish the best upon your star

You’ll blow good luck kisses to mine


Fairy tale mind games

Still lie.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
