Show or Tell

Know the difference between being in love and being in a relationship because you can be in love with someone but you can't be in a relationship with them. Knowing the difference is key for having a real emotional connection that solidifies a long lasting love life

Show or Tell is a poem written by Pasithea Chan and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme What Could Go Wrong? for the month of December

 

Show or Tell

 

ello-xhdpi-dce03356

 

Confusion a door to hell
opens by words that tell
lies with tongues so well
covering motives’ nutshell.

Motives are devils that dwell
in disrespect’s deepest hell
hiding truths that compel
eyes not hearts under a spell.

Eyes are a guardian angel
summoned by reason’s bell
to see not look with marvel
at false appearances’ nacelle.

Deceptive actions indwell
shows to souls parallel
with values held noble
bidding conscience farewell.

Devotion is a caravel
of actions that foretell
love meant to excel
through life’s carousel.

Love an emotional shrapnel
is thrown at a heart’s fontanel
by a charade of show or tell
that can overkill or undersell.

Inspired by: “Know the difference between being in love and being in a relationship because you can be in love with someone but you can’t be in a relationship with them. Knowing the difference is key for having a real emotional connection that solidifies a long lasting love life” E.E.
