»The talent of lying«

by Anesa Dindar, July 29, 2010

Like poetry,
Like musical ability,
Like painting,
Like sport,
Lying is a talent too.

Some have the inherent ability,
To create a fictitious life,
That is grander than necessary,
Larger than life.
Never mundane, never ordinary,
Always fascinatingly different,
And appealingly new.

They wickedly inspire,
And falsely attract,
Painting a magical picture,
In rosy hue,
Of a fabricated life.

But beneath their surface
Discontent boils.
Only the hopelessly unhappy and dismally sad,
will thrive in this pretence,
And when exposed,
In humiliation will admit
Their talent.
