Lies

“Lies!” that’s what you say.
“Lies!” that’s all you cry.
Spit in my face; hope that I die.
You walk away angry,
heart-broken, upset;
thinking I was only just joking,
you feel played and regret.

But I never lied,
never shifted my eyes
to the side, when you asked for
the truths of my heart,
I did give it; palms sweaty,
hands shaky, nervous; afraid
you would laugh, think me stupid
for feeling those ways.

I swore to you,
with my hand on the Bible
that bound us together;
our hearts both connected
–but you lied to me,
because you believed
in the whispers, the rumors you
promised you’d never give notice
as just cause to leave…
