The Truth: You Lied

You lied

With all your heart

By gathering all those sparkly words

Which can make one smile


You lied

About us

Being the best and forever one

Till the Earth summons us within


Oh you lied

For all that I gave

You,


You lied

Wearing that smile

I lend you to have it

You lied

With those glittery eyes

Whom I filled with love


You lied about love

With faintest whispering

So it couldn’t reach my ear


I heard your hoax talks

And your firm lies

Strangling my heart

Until my eyes bleed the pain


Oh my beloved

You stuffed my heart

With anger, vengeance and hurtful talks

Until my soul shattered

Into tiny pieces

On the way, like light and soft rocks


You left me at the lone ground

Ground burning with heat

And edgy rocks all around

You still lied

About didn’t noticing my bare foot


You handed over me

A bunch of Euphorbia flowers

You secretly saw the thorns

Pricking my hands

Penetrating deeper and deeper

Making way through my flesh and blood

But you still chose to walk away


You sent me a immensely beautiful box

Wrapped in mesmerising cover

Glistening under the light

The box filled with your frightful and rotten fate

I accepted it with open arms

And twinkling smile


Oh my precious

You still lied

You stole away my magic

And sunshine


You left me like a wilting flower

Losing every dried petals

Day by day

Thanks a bunch Maria!!

Indeed your guess is right, chuckles…

But liar is liar and it doesn’t actually matters.

Lying is done with words and it has power to tarnish hundreds of truths.

I am so glad to know that you liked the poetry.

God bless you.

I appreciate your beautiful comment Ms. Dora!!

You said is so well, “ Lies in beautiful package is still lies.”

Lie is a lie

White lie, half truth or hidden truth is a lie ( unspoken lie).

May god bless you

Thank you Chitrangada for a beautiful comment!!

If the readers can visualise the pain I portrayed here that means I succeeded in weaving this piece.

I am glad that you liked it.

God bless you.

Wow! You nailed him -- I'm assuming the liar was male. Maybe not. Does it matter? Either way, a passionate poem.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on September 24, 2021:

Disgraceful topic, gracefully recorded. Lies in beautiful packages are still lies. Well done!

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on September 24, 2021:

Sad poem, but fantastic!

You nailed this feeling.

I love the imagery you painted in my mind.

Great use of intense words.
