You Lie

Poetic verse and gleaming eyes
Dripping sincerity so benign
From practiced gestures
So rehearsed
That you believe yourself

I nod and smile
To help you through
Your elaborate fabrication laced with guile
All the while, through it all, you never thought I knew

Eroded trust and confidence, built on a house of sand
But never did you fear or suspect
That my heart might be broken at your careless hand
Believing that you loved me was too much to expect

So go your way
And take your words; hollow sharpened stones
I have no use for what you say
You’ve left me all alone.
