You, born to deceive me
with never a lie leaving
your lips; there
in port is tied your ship
of fools ~ how many ride
your painted tide
that never comes in?
You speak and nothing
rolls off your tongue…
the waves of your
oceans all undone
Flat, glass-like slickness
truth be a silent sickness
and you suffer
Like a water-globe painted
black, motion on the
inside, outside remains
intact ~ No spillage,
no leaks, emotion never
creeps into your sails
You glide 'round tempests
the current always the
same…the wind calls not
my name and so I bid you
Bon Voyage on your
ship of dreams…
a sad mirage

The walls we build around our hearts...just an illusion.
"Truth be a silent sickness."
I have known people like that, who seem to view lying as a way of life, honesty anathema.
Nicely done here, painting a bittersweet collection of feelings.

Too many lies abound 'tis true;
Another fine one penned by you!
Well done Caroline!

Thank you everyone for your kindness I do want to clarify that he never lied to me...deceit comes in other forms, sometimes. I needed answers and got silence instead. As we all know, sometimes silence is much louder than words.
