Believing Lies

It's hard to read between the lines.
When love entangles, intertwines.
You think that it is your own heart.
But you've been cast to play your part.

Confusion reigns and floods your soul.
Through out the years, it takes it's toll.
You think that love just never dies.
But then you find you're believing lies.

The sun has set so long ago.
And changed the dream you've come to know.
The hope is gone, the love has faded.
It's not a wonder that I am jaded.

You've walked alone for so long now.
Alone, alone, asking how.
Praying for a hand to hold.
Someone to love now that you're old.

You thought she said that it's your fault.
But she just wanted it to hault.
Someone else came into view.
To make her just give up on you.

Too much has passed in one lifetime.
The spell's been cast in words of rhyme.
Someday has come and I am grieving.
For the love and lies, I've been believing.

I like your poem, Robert, sometime last year ,, I was lied to. I wasn't reading between the lines. It was to late to see id been lied too.. sad it was. However, I got away from that person. LoL. He/she can lie to others now. The saddest thing about this person, is "even they choose to believe their own lie." Awesome. Skat
