I Love The Way You Lie

I know that you are seeing someone else,
I'm not there when you close your eyes,
I believe that you are kissing me,
Knowing I love the way you lie.

I hear those three words from your lips,
If love is even possible, it's impossible to cry,
Though I know your heart is not truly mine,
I will always love the way you lie.

Your arms hold me as if you care,
My wise heart still wonders why,
Pretending that everything is alright,
Because I love the way you lie.

When I kiss you I think about nothing,
Wishing it wasn't you when I open my eyes,
I wonder, if I told you the truth,
Would you love the way I lie?





Written for Just That Archaic Poet's contest - "Sing To Me"

Inspired by the song "Love The Way You Lie Pt. 2" by Rihanna ft. Eminem

Thank you so much, Andrea! I was already familiar with the song I chose, so that drew me in to write for this contest. I haven't been entering as many contests lately. Sometimes, the inspiration just doesn't happen for me, either!

Thank you very much, Chuck! This was not an easy poem to write. I wanted to tell both sides of the story, but from one perspective.

Exactly. Treating others how they treat you is only fair, even though it is not always the right thing to be doing. Thank you once again, Drake! That means a lot coming from you! I appreciate you stopping by to read and comment on my poems. :)
