Deception - Poem by Zoe SEM

We walked through the city side by side
With my secrets in you I do confide
Familiar faces all so strange
So many colours oh such a range

Last night I really couldn't sleep
The knowing was what made me weep
Even after such a brilliant day
To forget I really hope and pray

Working late to me you said
With her I found you in that bed
Never took you for one who lied
No where left in which to hide
