Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth


Horse and bird
you are real
your sinews strained
your breath painful
pale 
by blue water 
uncalm
unforgiving
untrue

Faun
you are dream
placed between
pain and obliteration
placid
unreal
choosing life
truth

Thanks to The Mag

I like the idea of the faun coming between the two of pain.

First there is the truth
Then there is no truth
Then there is.

Apologies to Zen.
