Fibs of Consequence

I know that I could wrap myself
All around your sour little frame
I could swarm your life with warmth
Known only in forsaking dreams

I know that I could see into your lies
And dissect the poetry out of them
I could make you so beautiful
While you float in your sham

Inch by inch you reach your doom
And you know it by now—
A heart like yours 
Is meant to consume!

Tell me, liar,
And liars to come,
Why should you fear
What we already know?
Why should I not embrace you so
Despite every abyssal blow?

I will cross you stricken by this truth
That when you lose—as liars do,
There will be another fool
To slither your life into

I could let you rest
Into my soulful acceptance
I could help you begin a life of promise
With the remnants of your deceit

Yet I know I must—in a blink, 
Release you in your trails of ink
And find my way to clearer waters,
Where tears are more assuaging
Than your fibs of consequence

    A liar of love is a devil of dreams...your poem makes me very grateful that I've never lied about love Laura. The title of your poem presents a curious paradox that I enjoy unraveling philosophically. The rhyming throughout this work is pleasantly unorthodox. Your determination is sexy to me Poetess...J.A.B.
