– little lies white as snow –

They fall one by one…

light,

cool,

each with a special design.

“I’ve applied for several jobs.”

“I went to go run an errand.”

“I’m working on a short story.”

“I enjoy being single.”

Perhaps this is my coping mechanism,

handling the heat of questions by

invoking icy answers.

They’re just little white lies;

how can they snowball into a blistering blizzard

if I’m controlling my own forecast?

  1. Boy, does this sound like me in years past!!! We never entirely stop worrying about ways to please everybody else by doing and being what we think they want or expect, but thankfully, it eases as we age! 🙂
