White lies!


I hate to lie,

About when I am going to lie.

I tell people that I am definitely tired,

When all I want is my ebooks to be fired.

They think the days toils have left me, arduous,

When in reality, I want to show my love,

Towards whom, I am so much virtuous.

They think they have succeeded,

In ripping me off, of my words and fantasy,

But a little more planning was supposed to be needed,

To have committed such a blasphemy.

But then again, I am happy to lie,

For under the sheets, I get to lie,

Where everyone tends to forgo the white lie.

  1. Wow. That’s indeed the best way to show your love for the e-books. Though, I am a big fan of paperbacks still sometimes ebooks either on Wattpad or Amazon just play fine too.
    Your poetry is quite wonderful just like you, I purely felt your words as I’m the one who read more than hangouts!

    1. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I AM AND WILL BE a very big fan of paperbacks!! Ebooks come on handy when I don’t have enough money, or when I need to hide from everyone and just pretend that like them even I am busy on social media (which surprisingly is more acceptable than reading an ebook) or at times like these when I need to crouch down under the sheets, without the light 😉
      But yes, books are books whatever form they are in.
      Thanks, love, for reading and appreciating.


Your perception holds importance for me.
