Half Lie, Half Truth? - Poem by Kelly Kurt

I’m pleased to meet you
I’ll get to it as soon as I can
No, you’re not interrupting anything
You look nice today
What is the difference between a half truth
And a half lie?
Intent

    A half closed door is half open too
    There is no such thing as absolute truth
    Be it our smile or the frown beneath
    We are all in a way actors supreme......

    Sadly life as become like this. We can see eye to eye and neatly lie as your poem so subtly explains. Great work Sir.

    Thank you, Chandrasekar. I insist on giving and receiving only the truth.

    I agree with what you have said, and you have said it directly and to the point which I like. I am reading through your poems, slowly but surely, and they are very good. Keep up the good work. (Report) Reply

    I am flattered, Raymond. I write philosophically, emotionally and goofily.

    Thank you. Most of us will occasionally spare feelings with a half truth. It is a philosophical debate, whether this is good.

    Many things we say out of courtesy or out of formality. Yet, the sincere heart says it well and shows it. Very reflective poem. Thanks, Kelly. (Report) Reply
