Those Lies and Half-Truths

Found Pantoum

 

Stories that fired my imagination

Glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations

Glitter in the sun like a revelation

Weaving a splendid mirage in this desolation.

 

Glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations

Tales that we tell to convince us and them  –

Weaving a splendid mirage in this desolation,

Those lies and half-truths from depths we plum.

 

Tales that we tell to convince everyone:

Of goddesses of Light, of Sea and Sky and Land

Those lies and half-truths from depths we spun

About goddesses of mystery, so delicate and grand.

 

Of goddesses of Light, of Sea and Sky and Land

Are stories that fire our imagination

Those goddesses of mystery, so delicate and grand,

Weave a splendid ‘Mirage’ in this desolation.

 

Notes: Found pantoum using song lyrics, including some original lines and edits.
