Words Can Lie

Rating: 4.9

I love you....I love you
Is the word I always hear
Are they words of truth
Or are they words to fear
Somehow I don't want these people near
Because I can't hear them clear
They're so easy to say
We all seem to ajust in this way

Just like we use 'love' so often, we also use 'hate' as generously. a simple poem, but lovely flow and the un-structured adds to its charm. Preets

As much as i love to hear that word, it scares me to death that it comes out as a lie out of the mouths of the people i love. A prayer always it is true when actions comform with the word. If true and comes from the heart, it takes to cloud nine. Very well said my dear.

Suzan, you have a nice feel for the language, por favor, can you write something in 'free verse? ' Rhyming can get tedious and constraining. Best always, Jerry

Very nicely expressed yes sometimes we say or listen this word so easily that it can be hard to believe at this but it's always so nice besides if we look a bit wider we can feel it :) But here i can read also that sometimes it's hard to listen someone who we dont want to listen anymore becuase all is gone, oh it's possible to read this in many ways and this is also great in your write :)

Thank you for your favorable comments to my poems. Yours are very good too, it expresses your comprehensions on men, but I agree to the old saying which say 'it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all'. Is your book distributed to the Phillippines too? I like to buy a copy. Keep writng my friend.

Such as life Suze, such as life, sometimes I agree with you... All though on the other hand, I would rather feel love than to see and hear the words spoken...... Easy flow and with alot of wisdom.... Bonnie

HA! beautiful. Magnificent! But, I don't like thinking that words are capable of lying. People are. To their selves & others. Isn't it romantic? ; -) Thank you, lovely. I'm already there. HA!
