BEAUTY AND THE LIE


Did you know some men will fabricate any story just to impress a woman as beautiful as you and to have her attention and artistic smile?

Such intentions are only humorous if they are fictitous to the listening heart and not meant to destroy what is truthful or to blaspheme what is sacred.

In my opinion, I find it wrong for any man to rob the heart of a woman like you with casual lies for the sweet flavor of her warm, passionate kisses.

You may suppose I think a lot of myself, but the truth is, I would rather lose your friendship to honesty than to have it with a lie.

What is born from dishonesty will usually grow from the soil of darkness and will eventually give birth to unfaithfulness.

Beautiful woman, your splendor is far greater than the lie, yet with invisible tears, I can taste your sorrow for the gifts of romance and love.

Do not give in to the temporary warmth of happiness that holds no hope for the everlasting fruits of love - instead, walk away from the lie and your heart will feel the absolute beauty of truth…which will always withstand the test of time.

 "Lies, Deception & Misrepresentation"

  1. One man will use deceit to gain the favor of a vulnerable woman, another man will use truth no matter the personal cost to himself.

    One woman will accept dishonesty in her desire to gain a mans favor and feel his Love, while yet another woman with courage will walk away from desire in order to stay true to her self.

    Where is the balance between Love and Desire? Right and Wrong?

    Beautiful woman, your splendor is far greater than the lie, and yet, with invisible tears, I can taste your sorrow for the gifts of romance and love.

  9. Beauty and the Lie...wow! Andy, your poems never cease to amaze me. The way you can express your feelings is awesome. There is much truth in the things a man will tell a woman to get what he wants. And many times a woman is so lonely and vulnerable that she is blind to what this type of man is telling her. How insightful for her true friend to express his feelings and try to open her eyes to these kind of men.
