Stop Lying - She's Not Naive

Blood boiling beneath her skin,
eyes seeing the color red,
realizing once again
he thinks she is naïve,
too sweet to understand the truth.

Stringing her along,
speaking words of deceit
hoping to hide his actions,
with empty feelings
for her emotions.

She wants to fast track
her appearance
making her forehead scream,
“Don’t mess with me!”

Her heart aches,
yearning for a basic level of respect,
but sees no effort from him
to restore the truth.


Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest.

— Benjamin Franklin
