Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul

She is a bad liar, that girl.


She is a bad liar, that girl. She can seamlessly hide behind words and metaphors but her eyes will always betray her. Beneath the layers of finery, if you look closely, you can see the pale glimmer of blues she has bottled inside. Wounds from years of baring her soul open only to zip it back up because she’s either too much or not enough. Scars from falling in and out of love too deeply. Stains, flaws, imperfections all trying to claw out of her skin.

She’s a bad liar, that girl. But if you stare long enough, she won’t look away. If you listen a little closer, she will tell you her story. No lies this time. Will you stay?

  5. Nice poetry and take on the prompt Maria. It was one of the first things I was taught in Police training. “Don’t listen to the words, always watch the eyes.” The eyes can tell us so much about what a person is really thinking or saying.


  6. This is beautiful! And relatable. Lovely take on the prompt.


  7. Beautiful Maria. So insightful. Live your new banner too. Did you design it’s? Ho
