Deceit

broken heart

Often it’s not,

The act that destroys,

But the betrayal of trust,

The secrets and lies,

I could have forgiven,

If you’d told me the truth,

And buried the rough,

Beneath all the smooth,

But you stole away choice,

In pretence and deceit,

Imprisoned suspicion,

Made my faith obsolete,

You left me to drown,

In an ocean of doubt,

Floundering in silence,

Not able to shout,

So how can I love,

When I know it’s a lie,

Yet how can I leave,

When I can’t ask you why?
