the camera never lies

never lies by phil burns

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

the camera never lies

a silver moon a bright blue sky
the sea as dark as night
trees dressed up in verdant green
what colour are you inside

the waves whisper across the sand
the wind whispers a sigh
my heart whispers a thought of love
your heart whispers a lie

the flowers stretch and raise their heads
it’s springtime in Paradise
I watch the birds in pairs build nests
I watch as your love dies

a red sail flaps and disappears
across the curved horizon
your red lips now so rarely smile
when they curve it is surprising

the camera never lies they say
I don’t think that is true
I see the face you turn to me
I don’t think that is you

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless.
