The shadow of deception
Be careful who you trust
even the sweetest people
can be in disguise
Leta Marie DeMello
The key to living in true harmony
resides in our ability
to show up authentically.
Marjie Yule Davitt
We shed our skins
so often we don’t know
what’s true or false
Behind this facade of
Bonhomie & etiquette,
Lies a serpent,
Waiting to strike,
When your guard is down.
Careful, it’s called diplomacy
The true identity of people
are not physically shown,
that’s why they harbor their darkest parts
‘Frienemies ‘are the usually closest
and pretence is their best tool.
What may be viewed beautiful on the outside
doesn’t mean it isn’t toxic on the inside
When hidden agendas take precedence,
Friendship is replaced with pretence
Look out for the backstabbing snakes,
don’t believe everyone’s your so called friend
Be careful to who you “vent”;
for some spill venom like “serpent”
Even the closest of bonds will critically
slither behind your back
Two venomous monsters
devouring every word of the juicy gossip
that they hungrily seek
Venom can be spewed
from the friendliest places.
Never tell everything you know,
A friend today could be an enemy tomorrow
Gossiping is nothing more than a viper’s den!
We pretend to be ‘friends’ for the society,
but, we are ‘enemies’ in reality
Just a conversation of fake masks that are at venomous task
Looks can be deceiving. Be careful of who you meet.
