Deception

Deception

Like a bee
alighting
on an artificial flower,
I am dazzled 
by your beauty,
captivated
by your promises.
Tantalising glimpses
of good things to come.

But,
like that flower,
you
are all show,
decoration,
trimmings,
appearances.
No substance.
No soul.

  1. So, you’re making a point about bad relationships? I mean, like the “bee” you want one thing: to satisfy yourself. If you happen to pollinate, oh well. Objectifying the “flower” helps justify the action. Hmm, this is deeper than I thought. 😁🐝🌹🌼

    • Thanks John. That’s exactly the sort of area I like to aim for. Make you chuckle, but then think, hang on a minute…😊
