Box of Deceits


A lightly whipped mousse of fascination,

delicately flavoured with laughter,

rolled in generous passion

and dusted with hope.



Purée of misunderstandings,

blended with rich disappointment,

encased in a smooth cup of bitterness

and decorated with silence.



An irresistible truffle of intrigue,

laced with delicious dishonesty,

in a crisp shell of cool pretence

and sprinkled with lies.



A dark blend of accusations,

soaked in smooth denial,

coated in thick anger

and topped with a bittersweet parting.

The End
