Lying Ways

"There was a while that I believed you,
that your love was mine alone.
But I can't be fooled forever;
now my trust in you is gone.

Only one good friend would tell me;
face that anger that she feared.
I saw the truth of what she told me.
You were lying in your beard.

Though it breaks my heart to leave you,
I would rather be alone
than with one who would deceive me.
With this message, I am gone."

He found the letter she left for him;
knew at once it was too late
to win back the heart that trusted.
Lying ways had sealed his fate.

And the one with whom he'd trysted
broke another's loving heart.
By their guilt two links are broken,
as more lives are torn apart.

Left now only with each other,
cheaters both well proven to be.
They can never trust each other;
just deserts it seems to me.

Joyce,
Big Smiles. I'm in agreement here with you on a couple of things...


Enjoyed.

LOL on the Doctor overdose !

It is nice to know that someone finds inspiration on the boob tube~

This is extremely well written ...
and many wise points in it~

Nicely structured and rhymed--I enjoyed reading this piece.
