Chat room Follies

pinocchio-1

don’t believe everything you hear
words are cheap when someone wants something
truth gets compromised and tossed to the wind
it easy to lie when fiction is your ally

we accept what we choose to accept
even when common sense warns otherwise
desperate people say desperate things
and some are beyond the point of no return

the sad tale you’re told may be true
many dreams end up dashed against the rocks
but it may be an outrageous deception
designed to drop your guard and draw you in

remember words are just words
you know not who speaks them
be not naive when it counts most
when someone tries to steal your heart
