My Deceptive face

I used to be kind to people, no matter what but then few circumstances led me to be a bit rash; as and what the situation wants but honestly nothing helped me neither being kind needlessly nor otherwise. My face; well, it deceives me always even if I am kind, it tells the story of my wrathful heart and when I am trying to be the rude judgmental lady it declares the words of the crying heart. It’s like an open book which can be read by any stranger. Literally; people have mocked my wrathful heart and even smiled generously at the teary one but also otherwise.

But what about the undisclosed emotions shut deep down within me; hidden somewhere even from me? I think they are the lies engraved on my face; like the black eyes which do not change their color, like my puckered mouth which smiles unnecessarily, like my ears listening to everyone’s story, like my nostrils breathing in life.

These are lies on my face, deceptive lies, do not believe them.

PS: I don’t know if I am making nay sense!

  1. Great 👍 Moushmi and u r making sense in your beautiful words that r framed from your heart. Our face gives us away in each and every expression of ours whether angry, sad or calm but our reality that is us only we can see in the mirror that will tell who u really r. 👌👌👌👌👌👌

  2. Aww lies for you may be the only truth for others. You know what you can lie,even you hide the truth in the best manner but your those black eyes can never lie but you know what your beautiful smile can hide the most disastrous truth of your life too,haha. I don’t know what to say more but pls you can lie from the world but never lie to yourself ✌👍

  4. I liked the second paragraph, especially the poetic sentence at the end. 🙂
    Everything around us is deceiving, in some way or the other. Sometimes we do realize it and the other times it just succeeds in deluding us.
