No Filter

I am not inconvenienced by empathy
whenever we speak to one another;
a lazy mind cannot spark a flame if
it only thinks of itself and no other

I can only see my weaknesses and
the heights from which I may fall;
I am not take me as I am, my love is
greater than a mind that darkens all

I’m not a blunt instrument, the
truth can be served softly as a lie;
do we love what's real or fantasy;
what can it be if not us but only I?

The desires of a lover; is it really me
or something from a dream; I know
all that I am; but am I deeper than
sorrow or important as your long ago?

@Brenda... that's it! It's amazing sometimes how people revel in being the blunt one. I prefer the challenge of civility and humility.

Yes, Mark. I get that. They seem to tell a half-truth, believing it is the truth.

They seem to think only of themselves, at least they think of themselves first with thought of how what they do affects others.

Thank you Brenda... this one is about people who claim they only tell the truth... it's not always the truth; it's their truth and at times it seems as if they are feeding their own lazy mind.

A nice written piece of work.

I’m not a blunt instrument, the

truth can be served softly as a lie;  so many people do this...i do not think one should lie to make things work.

Good read.
