Pseudologia Fantastica

In a twist of the wrist
or even a lemon
you may fabricate
your life as it sits
but it wouldn't
be as striking
as what you are
or just that far
and how it fits

It seems I've run into this in a few folks over the course of years and it seems it really isn't something to harm anyone but maybe more a mechanism of internal protection. It wholly reminds me that we are all weak in ways, and all need others whether we admit it or not.

If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were.
~ From: Mediation XVII, John Donne, 1624
