I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Fate is a poem about her remembering that first smirk. The smile she knows as a lie. It's common place now but she pretends she has no clue. She lets him hang himself out to dry for she knows it will come back to bite him.
"No Alibis by Eric Clapton"
She remembers that first smirk,
the smile she would come to know
as a lie.
It’s common place now
like a rose with a thorn
when he tries to pull the wool over her eyes.
She pretends she has no clue
letting him hang himself out to dry
no longer wasting precious moments of her time.
For she knows the day will come
when he hears the echo of his own words
coming back to bite him
where the sun don’t shine.
A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.
— Mark Twain
