Before getting to the main part of this post I’d first like to update you. For those of you who just came here and don’t follow my blog just scroll down to the picture :).
Thank you to everyone following my blog to new people on wordpress, email and social media :). You guys are all amazing and thank you so much for following my blog. I thought things were getting better for me and I’d be able to spend more time online but real life has other plans and I’ve become almost ‘overbooked’ with requests for book reviews from various publishers and authors. I still want to and will review all these books (and am available for reviews still) but it’s pushed my review time for new people to 4 or maybe even 5 months from now on (rather over than under estimate there). With all that’s going on I just can’t guarantee I can visit everyone’s blogs at the rate I was doing a few weeks back – please don’t hate me. Until things are more settled and I can dedicate more time, I just can’t promise to see everyone’s wonderful posts and like and comment on them. Luckily most blogs I follow I have email subscriptions to so I am sometimes able to read your posts on the go on my phone, but I can’t guarantee I can log into wordpress and comment :(. I hate disappointing people and hate to say this but please forgive me if I miss some of your posts. I’ll check in as often as I can but things have gotten pretty hectic with family and life suddenly. I also don’t want to mentally or physically burn out which is a good possibility if I don’t cut back on something. I’ll continue to put out blog posts, many might be on scheduled release so I can’t reply straight away. Hopefully I’ll still keep up with my blog posts just will be a bit erratic on other’s blogs and social media for a while. I hope you guys will understand and forgive me for not being able to visit you as much for a while
On to the main post….
This poem is inspired by today’s daily prompt word surface.
The Truth of Your Smile
The smile you put upon my face,
When you hold me in your embrace.
The way you joke and make me laugh,
And tell me you’re my other half.
You’re special to me you often say,
Seem to always go out of your way.
To make sure I feel so very good,
Saying the right things like you should.
But below the surface, truth sits bare,
The reality is you do not care.
Your laugh a fake, a smirk your smile,
The words you speak a sickly bile.
The truth is clear to all but me,
How long before myself I free?
