Tell Me a Sweet Lie

Tell me I'm the one, the love of your life.
It's not my fault you won't become my wife
I'll look in your eyes as I dream my dreams.
We can both pretend, it's not what it seems.

I know there's another who holds your heart.
I can't stand that it's ripping mine apart.
So I will take this, just one more night.
Hold me and rock me, till the morning light.

My pain is to great, please whisper sweet lies.
My brain knows what my Heart can't realize.
I'll give you freedom, please let me pretend.
I am not ready, for this love to end.

Tomorrow walk away, that is your chance
I will survive, if you give me one glance


Sonnet on an intimate relationship.

    Dear Richard, Your beautiful sonnet reminded me so much of a song called "Angel of the Morning" that I had to stop and listen to it again. If you haven't heard it, you can visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRsoWmXae40 This poem goes to my favorites. Congratulations on your win! Love, Carolyn

    Thanks Eileen, it placed fairly low but I still like it myself, it almost has the feel of a country song.
