Silken Lies

Standard

the first gift i ever received from my first love was a sea green silk scarf

i remember it fondly with a smile

it was imported, handmade, and so soft and smooth

smooth like the fantasy i believed he was

 

 

my last lover’s first gift to me was also a silk scarf

he wore it coming back from his a trip to Cambodia

it is white with black and red perpendicular lines

he wore it around his neck

smiling in many a photo from his happy trip

he draped it around my neck

 

too bad both of them ended up being liars…

PLEASE DON’T WRAP ME IN SILKEN LIES

GIVE ME BARE AND INTIMATE TRUTHS

  1. Too bad. Silk scarfs could have been such a sentimental and pure gift, if only at least one of them had been truthful to you. Yeah, may be wool or polyester now! 😉

  2. Love the last two lines..profound.
    This is exactly what I want from people too. Here’s hoping we find honest souls out there. Here’s also hoping you’ll check out my blog too. 🙂
