Poetry

Truth is a funny thing

Your
lips lie,
but eyes betray

    The lie commonly spoken – I am okay. If only more people knew how to read the eyes.
    I like it what you do with the various poetry forms, Sanch 🙂

    Only you who can convey so much in so little words. Kudos!

    You found a great turn with the body doublecrossing itself. My only suggestion would be to reword it so that “Your” isn’t on a line by itself. It doesn’t really have the weight to stand on its own because it’s so dependent on “lips.” “You” maybe, or “Lips” might work on its own?

    Oh the pics and those ‘few’ words said something that’s heard around. Well done!

    True that. Haven’t heard of this form of poetry. It does say a lot in a few words.
