Deception - Never Learned - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

In her dreams she was laughing
I was crying and awake
her body was moving as if in dance
my heart was beating like boiling bubbles

She was in happy state as she revealed the truth
I was in nightmare to cove the falsehood.
We were in contrasting style
I was looking down, she was dreaming high

To say the truth is like lighten your heart
to conceal the truth is carrying burden on your back
I decided to spill the beans
Morning I was behind the bars, she was a dancing queen

Even in dreams she knew the art of lying
Even in my awake state I failed to learn the lessons.

    The poem is a revelation of life's truths which you have done with remarkable ease. Thanks. I would like to quote a couple of lines from the poem to prove it:
    To say the truth is like lighten your heart
    to conceal the truth is carrying burden on your back
