I Lie…

I lie so often now.

I was an honest,straight forward

Yet the mysterious and blunt femme fatale,

And then I met you.

You were the Sun,I felt like a Moon,

I didn’t want to turn you away too soon.

So I lied .The very first time.

And started a roller coaster whiffing out my breath

and giving me unparalleled highs.

And the quicksand called lies,surrounded me in one swipe.

Now I wonder, if I tell truths to you,

Will it count as another lie for You?

Or the destructive spear, and the final dip.

    I am so thankful to you ,Amita for pointing out the text errors.But i do believe femme fatale can be blunt too.I appreciate your forever support as a fellow poet.

    Lies and lies…and wondering if it’s fine to lie… but if the relationship is

    ‘You were the Sun,I felt like a Moon’

    or was like the sun and the moon, it’s worthwhile to try with a lie to keep it… till the sun shines again and you start seing PART of the splendour of the moon… heyho!

    Love your honesty dear poet! Well, cast away the destructive spear …
