False Representations


Seldom strengthens trust.
Those false representations,
Keeps one to question...
Too often and too much.

And those doubts increase repeatedly
With beliefs decreasing...
To leave relationships released to cease.

Never to be what they were before...
When doors were open free to explore.
Now closed they are to ignore.
Closed to lock forevermore.

False representations,
Seldom strengthens trust.
False representations,
Keeps one to question...
Too often and too much.
And out of touch is not a wish but a desire,
To quickly dismiss that which was trusted to rust.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
