Lies and smiles – Daily Picture Prompt 43


Murder, she wrote
As hollow as a dock
As she read the quote
And the crow squawked

Dumb cat up the chimney
Sad as the absence of the sun
Emotional cruelty so bleakly
Such a heavy burden

The crow’s harsh caw
The clock’s ticking
Bone the dog gnaws
Her eyes brooding

Candle light’s flickering
As fast as a heartbeat
She’s tired from crying
Why was he such a cheat?

Then stop, completely still
In the garden and in the room
She was tense and unfulfilled
Her eyes peering into the gloom

Lies, smile and necklace
Hopelessly waiting for him
An existence at best aimless
Start again from therethrough
