What Lies Behind the Lies

Neon dreams
Streets of gold
Rainbow’s end
Treasures hold
Sunsets on the boulevard
An ace up your sleeve
Draw another card
The win’s not far
If you just believe

Flashing lights
Blinding stars
Dizzying heights
Oncoming cars
Take a drink
Roll the dice
Make a wish
Don’t think twice
Or you might
Notice the lies
Behind their eyes

The prompt is “orange lights and other lies” from Maria Giesbrecht @theguelphpoet on Instagram. April 23, National Poetry Month 2022.

Soulmate

Family by choice, in spite of repeated objection,
Risk of rejection.
Innocent love, in light of dejection,
Endeavors to remain true.
Never apart by heart from you.
Devoted friends and lovers by
Soul’s selection.
