Liars (an acrostic and rhyme) by Amy Swanson, Nov. 2008 Look into my eyes, tell me the truth for once - a lie Is all it ever was, I know that now. Although my love for you runs deep, my soul Retreats from your caress; you have Shown me you are just another one of many liars. Liars always seem to know exactly what to do; they'll say whatever it might take to make you think the lie is true. In deceit they spin their webs of never-ending lies, and get so comfortable with it they'll look you in your eyes and make it seem so real, and true, the words they say could make you weep; but they are simply con-men, the masters of deceit. However, there will come a day, when they no longer can atone for loved ones will no longer listen and they will wake to find they are alone.

Excellent Ann! You grace us with an opening acrostic, AND a wonderful quatrain. Fine enjambment, cadence and rhyme. Love, Keith
