Between-The-Lines

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

Listen to what is said but listen closely to what is not,
The fore you're to remember but the latter meant to be forgot.

~ Artsieladie Quote

"Between The Lines"

Guilty folks will give themselves away
More in what they don't than in what they do say.
The more they try convincing you it's the truth from their lips,
What they avoid saying becomes their give away tips!

Listen to the unspoken, the omitted more carefully
For here lies the truth they'll wish not for you to see.
Yes, read the written lines but also read between;
Watch for discrepancies meant to be unseen.

If Between The Lines matches what is on the line said,
The chances are good then Truth to you's been fed.
But if the in between and on the lines don't match,
Be the wiser one on guard and be not a fool to catch.

It may take a bit of time to figure out if one's being true,
But it's time well spent to know if one's fooling you,
Because over time is revealed consistency or not;
Truth needs no memory but lies become forgot.

Truth is unchanging; to keep track of is not needed,
Whereas lies need rehearsing, need to be repeated.
If someone is lying, as their stack of lies grows bigger,
They can't recall all and so they trip their own trigger.

Be forewarned, however, if you discover one who's fake
And can then expose them, do make no mistake,
They will be displeased with you to the umpth degree
And your character's assassination you will come to see.

Character-Cracks

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

"When we resolve our issues or an honest effort to is applied,
Our character's integrity remains, which we can know with pride."

"Character Cracks"

When we make amends, we close and seal cracks,
Keep our footing solid as we forward make tracks.
On our pathway of life, we stay on solid ground,
If we walk in humbleness, always Truth bound.


When we allow our differences left without resolution,
Cracks begin to form in our character's constitution.
True peace can't be had or felt within our hearts,
If we're burdened with the stress of many cracked parts.


So fix those Character Cracks before they're too big to fill.
Remember there's a way always if there is a will
To work things out amicably with the ego left excluded,
While honesty and compassion with Love are included.


But if you try to resolve issues with a humble heart and mind,
And the other person chooses to be unyielding and unkind,
You'll be the bigger person left with no crack in your heart,
While the other person will retain a cracked and broken part.

Jungle-Flower

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

The Internet is like a jungle with so many fakes, impostors, pretenders, predators, opportunistic leeches, scam artists, hackers, stalkers, etc.. It can be difficult to weed through them all to find someone who actually is true and real. But even against the odds, we can find a true and honest soul on occasion and each find is indeed a blessing.

People say they care when they don't really care at all,
But it sounds good and by saying so, they don't feel as small.
People tend to say what will serve themselves the best,
Hoping they won't be called upon to prove by any test.


People like to say lots of stuff they don't really mean,
They're simply performing so with favour they'll be seen.
To keep up appearances they make sure they appear
Like they are wonderful and caring as well as sincere.


Oh, all the fake personas out there, especially on the 'Net,
Who profess they Love and care, and you, they never will forget,
But as soon as your presence isn't as much as it used to be,
They'll forget you exist along with what they claimed emphatically.


Real is real. Truth is truth. Both are constant and consistent,
And so this goes with people, true friendship is persistent.
Fair weather friends shine on sunny days when there's no rain,
But true friends keep shining through in storminess and pain.


The 'Net is like a jungle, tough to get through,
All so overgrown, at times, treacherous too,
But ever so often we are blessed to find
A flower in the thicket of the rarest kind.


This flower we can add to the garden in our heart,
Knowing its beauty will remain, always be a part,
Of who we are today and in all our days ahead,
Always adding beauty uniquely in our flower bed.


Then, as for those who are plastic and pretend,
They matter not as a fair weather friend.
Only those who shine when our skies are grey
Are the flowers we must cherish each and every day.


Their presence may be obscured when from our eyes we see,
But their fragrance and their beauty in our heart will always be.
A Jungle Flower is a treasure, indeed, a miracle to find
Amongst the jungle of the 'Net so often fake and unkind.

Little-Things

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

It's the Little Things that DO mean the most. The "little" acts and gestures of kindness, affection, thoughtfulness, caring, and appreciation that 'seem' so insignificant, are presumed to be unnoticed and/or unappreciated mean way more to me than any big or grand display of the aforementioned. In fact I will look for the Little Things. ...And a person who pays mind to, to initiate little gestures of the aforementioned also shows positively in their character.

"The Little Things we think to do and/or to say
Warm the hearts of Loved ones in a special kind of way."

~ Artsieladie Quote

Little things mean the most but all too often are forgot.
Like seasonings of life, without them, life has flavour not.
The finest cuisine is dependent upon the richness of flavour,
How seasoned with herbs and spices to enjoy and to savour.

Little things are special touches, each one a treat,
Making something good more delectable and sweet.
Little things without, we can exist and survive,
But little things with, make us feel so much more alive.

It's the little things we tend to overlook,
Seemingly too small to enter in our book,
But when all is said and done and if we're minus of,
A huge chunk is missing in regards to Love.
