This post is in response to the one-word Daily Prompt – Fake.
Fake is the New Trend…
She stands tall
Her beauty glitters and shimmers
Fur – coat
Discordant funny accent
On a closer look
I realised she is two-faced
Concealed in pancakes and blushes
I saw the fanfare
The lavish display of perfection
A love photographed in monochrome
Elaborately splashed on Facebook
Curved lines carved in lovely patterns
Painted words made only for the fools
An ostentatious makeup to stir emotions
But in disguise she hid her bruised walls
I thought I heard it many times
Echoes of ‘I love you’
My sweet pumpkin
Where is the promise of sweet love?
Where is the promise of eternal bliss?
Mere illusions planted in the heart
A wishful hope turned a wistful pain
The bitter pangs of a deceptive soul
That leeched on the wings of love
I see fake faces screaming all around me
Buried in hollow subtlety
Echoes of the new trend
Fake is the new façade
Fake lives next door
Making appearances in subtle ironies
