Nothing But Lies

Tags: love, lies, regret
Lies, it’s been nothing but lies
Black words etched into my bleeding heart
Contaminating the past
Memories crumbling, falling apart

Those summer evenings we lay
Together, gazing at the stars
Whispers of endearment
Plans for the future afar

Are blown away with the storm
Amidst them, my heart and soul
Left with shattered pieces, I wonder
If I’ll ever again be whole

I was careless, losing my mind
Each time I saw your eyes
I blindly gave you my entirety
But you told nothing but lies

You vowed to hold me forever
To stay through rain or shine
Kindle my fire within, and
That I was yours, you were mine

I, a fool, believed you
But it was my mistake
We were so young and reckless
Too rushed, naive, easy to break

Now you realize you never loved me
Fleeting feelings, a misconception
Our special times were but illusion
Tainted words and false affection

Is your heart of ice, perhaps of stone?
To stand stolid to my distressed cries
You’ve moved on, long since gone
I should’ve known, you’re nothing but lies

Yet, I hope you find joy, someone else
With whom to watch the night skies
I will always love you dear, I swear
Though you promised nothing but lies
