“One Less Lie” – Nayana Nair

There are promises that I wanted to make
but knew I could never fulfill.
The imaginary me
that lives in my head
comes up with words too beautiful to last.
So I must swallow them before they reach my lips,
before they reach you ears,
so that there will be one less person disappointed in me
when I am broken down by all that I thought was beneath me.

  1. Very very relatable and great wordsmithing πŸ™‚
    “comes up with words too beautiful to last.” – I often think some of the best things I ever thought of never get written, as if too fleeting, uncatchable

    1. True πŸ™‚
      But I think we are lucky enough to at least catch a glimpse of this transient beauty even of we can’t capture it. πŸ™‚
      Really glad that you liked my work. Thank you πŸ˜€
