“Dust Of Deception” – Poetry

Brand-new poetry is up at T.W.N. !

The Whiteraven Net

curtain

I arrived at a performance filled with laughter and joy

A light-hearted comedy to shake off the dust of depression

So many care-free moments filled with wide-eyed innocence.

But then I briefly recalled my heart’s passion

That key to illusions past, present, and future

And it raised the second curtain on the theater before me.

The laughter was in mockery, they reveled in darkness and sin

The comedy was a tragedy of broken hearts and lonely souls

No standard to be held to, no truth to prevent starvation.

And so I shook the dust of deception from my being

In favor of wide-eyed wisdom.
