The Great Deception

Privacy lies just behind illusion of eyes and smiles of mimicry.
As words to unfold the truth not beheld as cowards could never, so directly, be bold.
Tis true a rose is yet a rose ....
The blind can not perceive, as love shields, true sight.
Survival a stronger adversary and a rival to love’s might.
Intricate the artist, who paints the murals of belief, blending these two, upon the canvas of our lives.
