Imagine This

Close your eyes -

don’t you find imagination

works better that way?

Now let yourself feel

that you have been misled,

lied to,

been taken for a

complete fool

for two thirds of your entire life.

You’ve become something you would never

have agreed to;

been made to be a monster

in your own eyes.

But shhh!

It’s a secret.

Don’t tell;

don’t let it show.

Doesn’t matter how old you are,

it’s the scale of the


that I want you to feel,

and then perhaps

you’ll begin to have

an inkling,

an understanding

of me.

I wish I'd only been deceived for two thirds of my life. It's ongoing, constant and absolute.

People are a deciever of hearts. It's only when you close your eyes, your life is a blank canvas, and then you can create art that is real. When people decieve you, your life is a forgery. It's a hard cycle to break, because these these, people are decievers, rather than recievers. A grim reality Hully. Great writing like always.

I'm one of those people who find it very, very hard to trust anyone. For the most part, when I do allow myself to at least partly trust someone I end up being stabbed in the back. At the same time it is so hard to be cut off completely.
