all the warmth
from your words
from the passion,
and the promises
maybe I believed or maybe
I pretended that
your writing wasn’t lies,
but still, I may be warm
while turning paper

“letter-lies” is a perfect name for them. written talk is so danged cheap. I like how you shifted the warmth, yet it still feels like cold comfort.
Oh, those last lines! “letter-lies”!!! LOVE.
Another fine poem.
Definitely relate as so many others have to “letter-lies.” Add to that “text-lies” and more. Fantastic poem though sad in its composure. Well done. 😉
You are on a roll 2 for today. Will burning the words to ash bring comfort?
At least the paper has a practical use if the words prove false!
Björn – I love how you actually got me to imagine the ending before I read it! Wonderful 🙂
Oh, this is wonderful … the art you chose enhances the poetry perfectly.
Turning those letter-lies into ashes provides no warmth.
I like this and the clever way you ended.
The denouement of those lines was superb, right from the first..
shizam, glad he found a use for them …. great writing!
