Trapped

Some gain notoriety by speaking the truth Coveted! There are fairy tales woven around it Almost touching the lusciousness in a dream Not being fair about the kind of convenience Distorting truth in a process of transformation The perpetual struggle to be good in their eyes Without spelling the entire truth Somewhere, stuck on a pendulous bridge The uncomfortable creepers hold the feet ~Amitav Advertisements Continue reading Trapped
