Omission

When you tell me your doing 
something, and don't 
Is that a lie?
I feel deceived, in not what you 
did
But in what you failed to own.

Feeling hurt, I wonder why
Was that the truth, 
Is that a lie?
Deserving more than in my 
youth. 

Are you unthoughtful, can that 
be?
I've been here waiting
Were you here, is that a lie?
Are you my friend, or are we 
dating?

Understanding escapes me now
Your hiding something I feel
Thinking you wanted me, is 
that a lie? 
Promises you never broke, or 
was that the deal.

A loving person, I think you are
But you never used that word
Saying things about marriage, 
is that a lie?
Listening to you, I feel absurd

I have two things to give to you
My heart and my time
Did you waste both of them, or 
is that a lie?
You didn't ask for either of 
them, what did you find? 

I ignored a few small signs
Thought nothing of them
Is your deception real, is it a 
lie? 
Omission is no small sin.
