Liar

That’s how she saw me

A lying jerk
Filled with mal-intent
And inebriated twist of the devil’s tongue

She removed my smile
My patience
My need for her

She was a professor
with a Masters Degree in Investigative Drama

Drinking shots of animosity and scorn
From half-empty glass
Layered in a syllable abused tint

Sucking accountability, dry

She removed my smile
My patience
My want for her

Vials of sadness
Broken over mattress
Where I entered her
Into innocence realm

She begged for more
She begged me to stay

But, I was already marked from argument’s first revelation 

Because even when I held her hand
Even when I welcomed her into my arms
After being beaten for being her diamond ring’s shadow

Even when I brought her closer to peace
It wouldn’t ever be enough

My smallest mistakes would become Armageddon’s cry

My apologies
The tissue

She removed my smile
My patience
My trust for her

Because I
Was a piece of crap

An irregular painting titled: “The Bad Guy”

Messages of sangre coated angst
Going to wrong number

Her errors
Still made me see her as a precious woman
Waiting to regain her peace
Her identity

But I
Was a liar

A screw up

Our finish line had no ribbons
For she had already cut my c(h)ord

Silence
Cold shoulder
My only way to hold this peace

She thought she could leave me

But I
Was already gone

Her tears’ contempt made me let go
Fears’ discontent helped me confirm my Western sunsets

To
Fly

Fly
High

Fly
HIGH

For serenity’s wing behooves me to sway
Towards these winds of change
Solace will hold me on palm
 
As I wish with final prayer
That Karma
Goes easy on her

    this is amazing, especially how she mistakenly sent messages to him.... Karma came upon her no doubt. everything done in the dark always makes it's way to the light..... an amazingly heartbreaking read with a welcomed bittersweet ending! well done, Katei

    She thought she could leave me but i was already gone-This speaks volumes. This poem transmits heartache and pain..but from these situstions is how we become stronger.Sometines we have to take a stand in life before 'the other' moves on us with both feet..

    Ok, who did what to whom ;} great write though,, I've always thought you have to like someone before you can really ever love them. Other wise it's just lust. You did an awesome job writing this ;}

    It's what she did to him. And, in turn, what he did to her as the last word. :) I certainly agree with you wholly on that. Thanks so much, Debbie! :)

    WOW. Such powerful heartfelt emotions of mistrust and disappointment and yet you wish karma will go easy on her, you sir know the true meaning of love! Hugs

    Indeed it is a sad thing. I think, though, that it can be more sad by those who don't know any better. Well said. Thank you so much, Destroyer!

    What an amazing way to express jealousy? in a poetic matter or is it concern? Whatever emotion(s) you had while making this poem, this poem is very unique. (David WB) P.S. Wow, you really did an excellent job on this poem! Keep up the awesome work, man!

    Ain't that JUST KARMA!!? What a fabulous take on a woman...I want to sit an slowly digest every detail of every line..some of this mirrors me on my worst days...and yet, .....I refused to cut the proverbial c (h) o r d! Splendid. A great read for an analytical paper! Best to you, Mr. Estes. Gwendolen

    Hey Wilma! Well, welcome back then! That means a lot. I think the thing about these kinds of writings, is that you never forget the way one makes you feel...yet, what you learn from it, makes the healing that much more vital. Thank you so much! Truly.
