Lips Made For Lies - Poem by Emily Gasperak

How can he tell her he loves her, and then walk away?
Coming back to her with apologies the very next day
His sweet words and promises once made everything okay
But this time, his games, she refuses to play

How can he tell her he misses her, and that his feelings are true?
As he constantly lies like she hasn’t a clue
Feelings of loneliness and despair are starting to brew
As she ponders the idea of finding somebody new

How dare he kiss her, with lips made for lies?
As the pain deep within, finally pours from her eyes
His kisses that once filled her stomach with butterflies
Now leave her alone, shattered and hollow inside

How can he put his arms around her, holding on so tight?
Painting a picture of their future that shines so bright
But when they have minor issues, he immediately takes flight
While she’s down on her knees, begging him to stay and make things right

But it’s now she asks herself, how she’s held on so long
To a man that’s consistently done her nothing but wrong
For their love, she had always tried to stay strong
But it’s becoming clearer now, that to her, his heart doesn’t belong

She had given him everything, and now it’s her turn to walk away
But the difference is, she won’t be returning the next day
And now alone he stands, his once vibrant world turned grey
For his carelessness and selfish acts, this is the price he must pay

For the love she had given him, was the truest he had known
But reciprocation of that love, to her, was never shown
His world is empty now, his heart as cold as stone
She let go and moved on, but he will remain forever alone
