No Truth in LiesI would've, could've, should've thoughtNo Truth in Lies in Free Verse More Like This
That there could be no truth in lies.
But blindly I followed your words,
A poor young gullible girl
Fearful and green in the ways of the world.
What was I supposed to do when your words,
Spoken so sweetly and coyly,
Echoed in my soul?
In your scheming wisdom,
You knew to speak with a voice
To melt the heart and weaken inhibition.
And when I woke with the rain dripping
Down my worn and weary face,
My arms embracing the emptiness,
I realized that the wild filly of my soul
Had been beat and broken,
Unable to remember the feel of freedom
That had once been my whole life.
