Liars


Why should I trust you
How do I know what you say it true
If I give you my heart
Will you promise not to rip it apart
I have been hurt so many times and in so many ways
Now you have my heart, in your hands it lays
Remember you can't break a promise
So I'll tell you this
One chance you'll get
This you best not forget
For if you ever hurt me like so many have before in the past
I promise you this, your life it will not last
I'm tired of always crying
For those that all there good at is lying
So I tell you now
I want take it, no way no how

    This Is Awesome. Keep at it, and don't write your poems to please anybody but you. Unless your writing it for someone in particular...but this one is gold. Hang in there. (Report) Reply

    My heart bares scars as well. Love is such a dangerous thing. It'll either make you REALLY happy, or REALLY depressed. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
