Love Lies

Flowing lines of whispered words lured me into your net
Spangled words that offer love and leave my heart upset
Your honeyed lips betray the lies that break my heart in two
For I, being such a fool, I stupidly believed in you
I believed you when you said have faith in me
I believed that you really meant our love to be
I thought our love would flourish and grow
How foolish of me to believe in a dream so

Your eyes made me follow you into the treacherous trap
I went willingly into danger hoping love would fall in my lap
The foolish will rush in where angels fear to walk at all
Being blind to my fate I didn't think I'd take a fall
I believed that love was there waiting for me
I believed you were the one who held my key
I thought that my dreams could come true
How sad that I had to fall in love with you

Your arms promised that they'd never ever let me go
I belived in your love, I wanted it to be the truth so
You said my voice was like an angels blessed song
But your love for me it didn't last for very long
I believed our love could stand the test of time
I believed your kisses were true loves' sign
I thought your arms would keep me warm
How cold it is out in this sorrows storm


Marsha

Only a memory of the same

The disappointment of a love that fades too fast.   Fragile and sad.  Emotion flows wonderfully.

To capture and live a moment is truly living

No love doesn't lie only people can lie. Or did they lie, do we read more into what they say than what is really there. Oh heck who knows, life/love is fickled.

Forever and Always seem to come easily when
the moment is washing over you like a mighty
river...that doesn't lessen the pain though
when the rivers cease to flow..Heart felt
writing Marsha my best to you~

Dreamkeeper, this isn't actually about me at this moment. I have been having a bit of a blue week and this memory popped up. I'm glad you liked it, and thankful that it's not me.
                    
Inot2B, You're right love doesn't lie, people do. Or maybe they just confuse lust with love, which is sad, I think. Thank you for reading, I do appreciate it.

Bdc, true you can be carried away by the moment, people often are. I do think that some people use the wors of love to trick others though. As I said this isn't me at this moment, but who knows what the future holds.

Pepper, thank you love, I do appreciate it. It's one of those places in your heart, that you have to visit now and again. Maybe with the idea of knowing yourself better. Glad the emotions came through.

Tracie, thank you muchly, I'm grateful this isn't about me, because I do remember feeling this desolated, and unhappy. Not the nicest situation to be in. Thanks for your support and the hugs.
Take care
              Mushy Marsha

this was heartbreaking, but perhaps I can shed some light that might help...love doesn't lie...it's how people define love...men move on impulse...some learn to listen to their upbringing of what is right and what is wrong...but today, unfortunately everyone thinks sex is love, or a reason to copulate?  When men are impulsed, it is very hard for them to say no to those impulses...as well as woman...it depends on how they were brought up to believe and they really do believe they are in love, but then, upon their mate making a mistake, and it could be something very small...they move on, using that mistake as justification for their actions....

Unfortunately, when society starts teaching that love is not a fairy tale, but very realistic and hard at times...nor is love co-dependent...

when I look back now, I know, if I had known then, what I know now, my choices would have been on compatibility, and a lot more realistic characters which leaned toward the way I think and feel...

Just thinking out loud here, hoping that perhaps my experiences might help to bring you some light and peace.

thank you for sharing this

"I went willingly into danger hoping love would fall in my lap
The foolish will rush in where angels fear to walk at all
Being blind to my fate I didn't think I'd take a fall

How sad that I had to fall in love with you"


Knowing this part all too well. Hard lesson learned of "sometimes love just isn't enough".

big hugs to you!!
