This is a collection of poems that I did for my final in my honors english class on our poetry unit. My theme was deception and I was really happy with the way it turned out, so enjoy.

Denial (An Alphabet Poem)

Acusations

Bring

Closely

Defensive

Emotions that are

Forever

Guarded and

Heatedly

Inverted towards the

Judgment

Try Honesty (Clerihew)

Pushed, with your back against the wall

About to loose your footing and fall

Lying might seem like the best thing to do

But in the end you will always loose

What's Done In The Dark

Secrets are told in the night

Every word a whisper

Hidden when the sun brings light

When it's out of our sight

There's nothing to consider

Secrets are told in the night

In the dark you forget what's right

Lies that change who you were

Hidden when the sun brings light

Stars that might've shone bright

Fade away and whither

Secrets are told in the night

The lies that you write

Turn into rumors

Hidden when the sun brings light

You tried to put up a fight

But the dark won you over

Secrets are told in the night

Hidden when the sun brings light

Who Are You? (Haiku)

You put on an air

Conceal who you really are

Who will you show you?

Why We Decieve (Free Verse)

We lie to protect

Ourselves and others

But no one sees

Who it will effect

But in the end we hurt

Ourselves and others

Sometimes we see

Who it will effect

But we don't care
