The Truth Teller

Her musing chatters

Are always the talk of the conversation.

She often openly

Explains the nature of society

But later, apologizes for telling the truth

To avoid defamation.

At first, it’s hard to digest those stories

That too coming from a woman

But later, my ears got used to her feminine voice

And my head starts nodding in admiration.

Believe me, I am not in love with this girl

In fact, my doubtful behaviour is not even close

To the first sign of love – Infatuation!


One day, my moody brain started mumbling

Asking me to go to a fancy restaurant.

The café was fantastic in its glossy ambience

With the romantic candle-lit set table, salient!

Ah, my mind couldn’t stop

The slideshow of her passionate-in-talk face

But the eyes quickly responded by spotting her,

Looked so silent!


I let the best out of my creep

And jumped right in front of her to say ‘Hi’

She looked at me for almost a minute

And said, “I am fine!”

Her uncomfortable senses are clearly visible

And the face emanated horrendous lines.

There was a clear distinction between these two girls

One was confidently true to herself

But the second was living in a fearful lie!

The 19th poem on the 20th day in the series of NaPoWriMo 2018 challenge.

The song of the day is Houdini by Foster the People.
