nothing more

nothing more
whets an idle
appetite
than a dose
of blatant truth

remember how
it sat upon your tongue
feverishly wanting
its presence
to rake
the very
palate
it rested
upon

there was nothing
else to do
but swallow
to give thought
to its sour aftertaste
may it burn
and cleanse
the icy-sweet
lies that
have blinded
your heart

    Wonderful words of honesty and wisdom.

  2. Pawan Hira says:

    …and this is where we are heading to ?
    In assuaging lies, mouths have forgotten the taste of truth.

    underlying beauty of these and each line –
    “…..remember how
    it sat upon your tongue
    feverishly wanting
    its presence…”

    There is something mystical about you that attracts me. Your brevity has more depth than what I have read and understood. You carefully place your thoughts here, and this makes me want to know you more.
    You are a wonderful person. You are calm and you know that — it’s a quality. 🙂

      How very truly said Pawan =)
      Thank you for your calm words….you are such a wise and wondrous soul and it only makes me wonder how well you know my muse…I on the other hand am just as lost as everyone else and trying to find my way. =)

      • Pawan Hira says:

        I’m running with you on the same level of wanderingness.
        ….and your aura of quietness attracts me, and I’m still lost in your pages of life. I want to read more, and to see what is hidden behind those eyes.

Thank you for your valuable comments! =)
