Beautiful Lies

how many times
do we say

I love you
when it's a lie

I'm fine
when you want to cry

I'll live
when inside you die

I won't give up
when you don't want to try

I'll miss you
when it's easy to say goodbye

I love you
when it's really a lie

how many times
tell me how many times

    Adam, to quote Don McLean, "something touched me deep inside" when I read this poem. Carolyn

    Loved the power of this poem and the impact of its read, i can really picture in my head my mom asking me that question when i would brake something and will times will i brake things in the house, though yours is about love it seems. enjoyed reading it.

    Clever rhyming... stark opposites, highlighting the complexity of emotions either true or false. Well done my friend! Best wishes, Keith
