false face

Put in 
the gutter 
you held within 
cold black ice 
a mask of lies 
truth reveals 
one deceitful heart 
as this world 
crumbled inside 
it fell apart 

bonds breaking 
in a chain
of feelings
crying heartache 
bled a river 
dealing hurt 
you crossed 
a line 
speaking from 
the depths 

shackled steel
in deep dark dungeon
numbed emotions
feelings upside down 
a question 
without answers 
not knowing why 
without mercy 

the longing pain 
links with words 
became twisted 
aches piercing 
this soul 
in you dies 
as tears fall 
clouds dreams 
darkens skies 
within empty arms 
your heart loveless 
within died 

full of empty promises 
became cursed words 
alone feelings 
leaving a deep scar 
broken emotions 
saw within 
the false face 
deceit and lies 
truth behind 
your mask

    You write with such honesty, Liam, and I admire that. You are not afraid to show your emotions, and that is a rare quality among poets. Excellent writing, my friend!

    I read this before, but was unable to post because it caught me so by surprise! I'm not used to reading something of this nature from you, Liam. However, I know that life cannot be all rosy and romantic. I hope that whatever the inspiration behind this write has not hurt you too deeply....Eileen

    This shows deep feelings of hurt and pain. Throughout life we will meet people like that, but we will also find good people that will cure that pain. smile Jesus loves you.... Lucilla
