Lies


The man who said he loved me
The man who said he cared
The man who said he'd die for me
Was never really there

This man who filled my heart with love
Also filled my head with lies
He enjoyed all of my laughter
But ignored all of my cries

I gave him all I had to give
He took it with a smile
But now I don't know where he is
And I sit here in denial

I never understood love
But oh, how I wish i could see
What love really is
And have someone who loves me

Instead, he left me here with nothing
Except my grief and pain
He promised me a sheltered home
Yet I wait here in the rain

But I am not at all confused
No, I think it's plain to see
That this man, like many others
Has forsaken me

    This is why we continue on in our search for what is genuine. Life may be short but not so to enjoy love that is real and also a bumpy road at times. John (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
