Poetry

Lies I tell myself 

Echoing voices

Brief flickers of

Light behind my

Eyes seeing potential

Birthed by different

Choices of a life

Not lived

Caught unwary

Tinged these

With regret

Painful loss

Of a false future

A lie told to

Myself

Though I love haiku, I also love creating longer works and free verse.
