Box of Deceits

Parfait

A lightly whipped mousse of fascination,

delicately flavoured with laughter,

rolled in generous passion

and dusted with hope.

 

Coupe

Purée of misunderstandings,

blended with rich disappointment,

encased in a smooth cup of bitterness

and decorated with silence.

 

Caprice

An irresistible truffle of intrigue,

laced with delicious dishonesty,

in a crisp shell of cool pretence

and sprinkled with lies.

 

Croquant

A dark blend of accusations,

soaked in smooth denial,

coated in thick anger

and topped with a bittersweet parting.

The End
