A Different View

Mag_110

Pull away from me from a different view,
see the depth of my deception.

Understand the imagined innocence of which I have none,
grasp the reasoning of my insanity and strangle it into submission.
For I am forever deception,
forever filled with lies,
forever going to hurt you.
Today I blinked but twice,
once to tell you I am on your side,
that I love you and always will.
And once to admit I can hardly recall your name.

Pull away from me from a different view,
see the depth of my deception.

NOTATION: I used this prompt as a practice in writing quickly. As with my blog Fast Fiction Friday which tells the writer to write a story as quickly as possible for 30 minutes, I often do the same with poetry. If I think about the subject too deeply, I often lose the idea completely. I have the ability to write with a set outcome in mind but I find writing without knowing initially where it’s going to be the most fulfilling and successful.

There are places in this one I want to change but also want to leave it as it was initially written. Often when I start messing with my own writing I end up with a feeling of ‘blah’ to the finished product. On the other hand, there is something to be said for rewriting, reworking and republishing. 🙂
