Daily Prompt: Sudden Shift

This is summer joy:

The sizzling heat is cozy

The wind dabs our skin gently

The freshness of the beach perfumes the air

And the tide ebbs now and then

This is summer joy:

Time whizzes past

Those swimming did with less energy

Those tanning slept soundly

Those playing did gaily

Pets were active and joyous

And chirping birds sang nonstop

A sudden hail invades in high degrees

And a gripping eerie sensation raised our heartbeats

Where did summer joy go?

A massive ominous cloud hovers above… miles wide

The huge frozen rain dealt us terrible blows

And we ran for our dear lives

Yes, we ran helter-skelter for our lives

Where did summer joy go?

Telling a lie to your partner



Telling a lie to your partner just because you want to communicate or make them feel proud of you truncates the growth of your relationship. The consequence is devastating, except they live a life of lies as well. Even liars get angry when they realize that someone has lied to them.

In any way, telling a lie to your partner kills the trust they have for you whenever they realize what you have done. Once trust is dead in your relationship, your communication dies too and then comes gradual rejection, and then a total breakdown of your relationship if nothing drastic is done to change the situation.

Carrying your partner along is all about opening up to them in every activity within and outside your home, and ensuring that you are on the same page. Anything short of that may put you in a tight situation where you have to lie to your partner in order to maintain what you share.

The truth is that by making the choice to tell one lie, just one lie, you will keep telling lies to conceal it, and your attitude may even change for the worse.

Not carrying your spouse along may force you to keep secrets and all you do in such a state is to tell lies and behave in strange ways which may make your partner to be afraid of you instead of to be in love with you. Avoid this kind of behaviour by being open to your partner from day one of your relationship with them. You will have nothing to hide if you have been sincere from the beginning, and you may not have any cause to be weird.
