Poem: Nothing Is As It Seems

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Nothing Is As It Seems

Her eyes fill with tears
for the house she shares
is no longer her home,
it is only a place to lay her head.

Her heart is breaking
for the man she loves
is no longer hers,
he wants another.

Her world is crumbling
understanding that nothing
is as it seems,
it is an illusion.

Her love is vanishing
knowing it is useless
to waste her time,
she is not appreciated.

Her trust is gone
realizing the truth
behind his lies,
he betrayed her.

Her life is in turmoil
for she is no longer
a spring chicken,
someone has a sense of humor.
