Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were Assign, Pretense and Traverse.
Without a doubt, it’s a fine pretense,
The face we show the world.
We all assign a pretty mask
While behind, the truth is curled.
That no-one is perfect.
To cross the outer skin,
To traverse beyond their defences,
If only to reject what lies within.
