I need to feel connected
even if I cannot trust.
Too long I've lived in the desert
starving for something more
than dry rations
from your pack.

I am fed,
but not nourished.
but always empty.

Surviving on whims and wishes
amid the destruction of our past,
I long to taste the burning sweetness
of your lie,
the creamy confection
of false promise.
With whipped cream
and a cherry on top.

An indulgent feast of fantasy
would sustain me one more day,
and break the monotony
of this diet
of truth,
and alone.

This is a Three Word Wednesday post

being 'full' and yet unnourished is an absolute disconnect which can spread across a desert of meaning..i like the hollow calorie desert reference in there too..life feels like that much of the time..

We all feel disconnected sometimes but find our way back to some happiness.

This was really good. I really, really liked this. Like, I don't even have the proper words to laud it.

"The burning sweetness of your lie" sounds like fooling yourself with their insincerity. You have to be pretty desperate to resort to that. Sadly we often clutch at such straws.
