Selective revelations

Make-believe

Only certain confidences

Passing through the sieve

 

Contradictions in

Your earnest voice, your shifty eyes

Give me a reason, to be blind

Give me a reason, to believe your lies

 

You love what you see
But you see so little
A decorated lie, a fabricated story
A breathing impostor, in all its glory

A safe distance, from afar
Hidden, ugly scars
 
A step closer, uncertain
A glimpse of what’s behind the curtain
 
An instant too late
Love, replaced by hate
 
The moment, irreversible
Every deceit, discernible
 
The dream tarnished
Against my wish
 
Another disappointment
To my mind lent
 
Deep within, a familiar stir
Maybe I am simply, looking in the mirror.

The glimmer of a promise
In those bottomless eyes
A practised deception
To conceal blatant lies
An assurance
In the veiled smile
That’d fade away
Before the end of the mile
A tingling warmth
In the gentle touch
With time which may
Not amount to much
Words uttered
But never meant
The fabric of trust
With an irreparable rent

The only remnants
A tangled mess
The pain soon soothed
By a subsequent numbness
