Self-Deception

So many years,
so many decades,
each filled with
truths,
lies,
and deceptions.

The self-deception
of long ago
burned deepest,
a memory vivid,
him playing his guitar
before he was gone.

She was someone else then,
living a different life,
the realization
too late
that the love she'd felt
would never come again.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
