I just sit upon a writing desk, and write. And then, I tell stories. Legends of long ago.
this is something new, I will have to try this,nice read.
The prompt was a good one. Could be deceptively simple, and yet very difficult. Kind of like your contradictions! Thank you for visiting.
To me, the final three lines could apply to the narrator or the person about whom the narrator is speaking. Or both, I guess. I enjoy that layering, well done.
Ahhha! You saw it. While writing this, I went through a metamorphosis. First the self deceiving mistress. Then the deceiver.

Wonderfully crafted. I agree with 'chips from a life'; this is indeed a painting of words. Visit my blog @ another part of me
Very artfully written, unfortunately it reminds me a bit of someone I know at the unfulfilled part...
We have all met one or the other, haven't we, Daisy?

Sometimes poetry can't be explained. It loses its magic. But here, the flaw (malady) of one creates another flaw in the other.
strong writing...well done!
Thank you Laura!
Love that phrase, a creation of your malady--poignant and well written :-)
Dear Sara,Sometimes we let ourselves be dictated by the expectation of others, don't you think?
So much truth in these lines Ninot....a beautiful write indeed.
I guess, Carrie, we all have gone through these passages of life. Perhaps we all go through the same trials, emotions and interaction with different degrees, a test how to see we react? We choose? We live?
