L -I -E-S.

Poetry By: Poetlife

I share some lies I have experienced in my life's journey- with some of you-may be some will relate to. It really hurt at the time, I didn't know who to trust again, or who I was. Hope this poem tells you some of that journey.Why do those we trust betray us with lies?

L -I - E - S.

(c) 25/4/2013. By Poetlife.

Thread of betrayal

Runs through life.

Eye of the needle

Some sew in time.

Dis-trustful the one

Betrayed becomes.

Lies, change lives,

Hides anothers

Faults, lies, lives.

One betrayed

Asks, wonders why?


To cover a loved ones lies.

Why did they not

Truthful be?

Was it because

They were ashamed,


Life past

Lived in sin? fear?


Losing me?

My trust in them

They couldn't see


All three?

How sad

For all of us.

Trust corroded in me

When I found out.

Pain, hurt, shock ,

Has subsided

Truth sets us all free

In time?


Am I left to feel,

Life changed,

Our relationship


Was it me?

They had to protect?



Their lie.

Would truth come

Flowing out?

Like waters rushing by


The past, fast.

Did I have a right to know?

Questions in my life

I ask.

What would it have been?

Hints, words, snide remarks,


Of relatives past.

I think about

Said in the past,

I put together

Think about

Question in my heart.

I search for answers,


Lies un-told

They do not my life


I will search on

For truth.

Travel along life's path

Trying to understand.

Hurting, painful

Journey of regrets.

I feel they stole

My life from me,

They didn't have the

Right you see.

Brave souls tell the truth.

I am free in

The Lord,

He will reveal all in time,

I wait for Him


Answer me.

If I listen


His voice.
