Cursed with the hands of an explorer, I am persuaded by eyes as dark as caves, always intrigued by the burial ground of people’s hearts. I have become a professional in the archeology of pretence - raised with dirt beneath my fingernails I cannot help but dig for evidence beneath earth, intention beneath word; pick at meaning until it bleeds then blame the wasteland for the flies. He asks if I am alone but not if I’m okay. Letters fall from his tongue like charms of a bracelet; I excavate truth not in the words he speaks, but the emptiness between. Pretence: An attempt to make something that is not the case appear true. Forgive me for wasting your time, and mine. I thought there would be more to find here. I had forgotten how caves are nothing more than vacant spaces another would desire us to fill, all the while left hollow ourselves. #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetryofig #poetryofinstagram #poetrylovers #poetrysociety #poetrylove #poetryislife #poetryinmotion #poetryporn #poetrygram #poet #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poetryisnotdead #spilledink #spilledinkpoetry #amwriting #amwritingpoetry #writersofinstagram #writer #writerslife #writerscommunity #writersofig #writersnetwork #author #authorsofinstagram #kathyparkerwriter
