THE TRUTH OF CONSEQUENCES

Written by: Michael Poyntz

Have you ever
caught someone you  love
in a lie that they whispered 
suddenly
a lifetime of conversations
past and present
are no longer 
and can no longer be 
the same again
 …..ever

so much history
cast to the wind
for so little
a promise once forgotten
become’s unforgettable
the difference between
 a lie that you hear
and the truth

is every thing 
you ever were
…..forever

Have you ever
been caught 
by someone you love
in a lie that you whispered
suddenly
a lifetime of dreams
present and future
will never be
and can never be 
 the same again
…..ever

so much future
lost to the wind
for so little
a covenant once vanquished
becomes unforgiveable
the difference between
a lie that you tell
and the truth

is everything 
you will never be
…..forever
