Hear her sing of sun-kissed,
heavy-lidded tragedies that roll
off her tongue as sweetly as
sugared violets and as naturally
as nightfall; but bruise the lungs
of those who breathe them in.

She is no poet's muse, but
these summer-drunk revellers
will never know better.

She didn't even need her mask in order to fool them.

(shakes head in disbelief) (claps resoundly)

It honestly deserved the DLD! This work, honestly deserved the DLD!

Its haunting what you've written, hun, especially how you've captured the nature of storytellers who can lie with a straight face, and tell stories that are simply... so easily capable of fooling people. Its true honestly - its something worth thinking about and worth pondering over. Well written!

I love the fact that this is dedicated to the muse of "tragedy"! This has a soft power about it, if you're not careful, you'll miss it. Really a wonderful read!
