Did You Really Care The Way You Said You Did? - Poem by Bradley Lester

Did you really care for me
The way you said you did
Or were these words replies to mine
The truth behind you hid

I'll never know the actual truth
Of what I meant to you
You seem to say kind words at times
Their meaning are they true

Did you say those things to me
Just as a matter of fact
or did you mean them in your heart
A simple honest act

I do not need an answer
About the words you spoke
I'm merely simply pondering
The truth or just a joke

    should be shown. If not then time will tell. nice.

    A good poem asking for differentiation between truth
    and a joke....The concerned relationships should know
    the importance of what they speak for what is inside
    should always adopt the form of words.....10/10
