You Lied

Poem By A.J. McKinley

You Lied
Words cascaded effortlessly from a forked tongue
I was naïve to consider you pure

You Lied
Eyes that never spoke anything but broken dreams
My trust was never so fleeting

You Lied
Remorse was a thought forgotten once heard
My mistakes laid plain before others

You Lied
You smiled as worthless promises fell from your lips
I believed because I needed truth

You Lied
Whispers of love as we kissed in soft candlelight
I must have been such easy prey

You Lied
Because you could
And I believed

Painful. You have described the betrayal well.
It's all too easy to believe those lies, AJ. How many of us have been caught in those same nets? Nice poem.... Love, Fran xx

Dreaming Of The Sea

I am dreaming of the sea.
Of oceans of love to bind you with me.
Silent rocking of your tongue with mine.
Here in your arms, there is no time.

A Dreadful Day

Have you ever walked on a sea of sand?
And thought it broken glass?
Have you left your heart in a barren land?
And be haunted by the past?

A Dozen Roses

The wilted roses sat regally in the vase.
Their beauty never more apparent than their now decay.
The petals fall listlessly onto the carpet.
She never notices the thorns have no points.

Fire & Ice

I am the creator who cannot find
The soul in which I burn
A witch of fire, frozen in ice
Freedom is a flight I yearn

Lady's Reply To The Rose And Leaf

If I were a rose and you were a leaf,
the thorns would not grow upon my tree.
You would bask in the glory of beauty spent.
Content to reside where my heart went.

Rainbow Tears

Through rainbow tears I see love's true colors
Shining bright amongst them above all others...
Red, Green, Yellow, violet and blue...
All these beautiful colors I now see in you.
