Like a spider you drew me into your web Cocooning me within your silver threads Words, pretty words I was totally taken in Wrapping me up in silk ribbons, like a party gift. One for you to open at your pleasure. You teased me, toyed with my emotions Powerless to resist, I believed your web of lies I was trapped … "Trust me," you said. Oh what lies, what wicked lies you wove Foolish was I for believing your every word. Love blinded my eyes, My heart heard only your song. I thought you could do no wrong, Then slowly, the scales fell from my eyes. I realized your web was one of deceit. The cockerel crowed three times You lied! You lied! You lied! Keep yourself wrapped in the lies you weave. Other innocents may fall victim to you as prey But I've broken free from your hold, and untangled myself from your web of deception. 06~27~16 Contest Pretty Talker Sponsored by Skat A Entered into Any free verse poem in 200 words or less Sponsored by Laura Loo word count 157 words

This is fabulously, beautifully, wonderfull penned. A wonderful "outing" for he who-deserves-to-not-be-named.

Thanks Arthur:-) You also need to look at eyes for signs of deceit - Sadly some people are so adept at lying they don't even realise they are doing it - I speak from very personal expereince with a member of my family:-( :-( hugs jan xx
