(979) Pathological Liar

Rating: 3.6

Someone who has
a hole
in their soul.
Seeking attention
through lies told.
A person with
a character
so weak,
they believe every
word

they speak.

And I thought truth couldn't get simpler, until I read this by Melvina. Oh, do you ever weild a sharp, poetic knife! ! A mistress of words and sharpness of getting to the rock bottom core of the matter! ! ! Great, as always! xxElysabeth

Powerful concise poem, Melvina. The twist at the end made me think twice, and look at myself. I think if we look carefully at every word we speak I'm not sure that we would find them all truthful no matter how truthful we try to be.

This tactful poetry made me think of some greedy politicians and their erring supporters in my country... THE PATHOLOGICAL LIARS AND THE WEAKLINGS! Double 10.
