A response to Lies

I had a love, I had a life

I meant the words I spoke at the alter

I meant the rings I put on your finger

 

I never meant to lie to you

I never meant to change how I felt

I never meant for you to hurt

I never meant to see her

 

Her smile tricked my eyes

Her laugh tricked my ears

Her words tricked my heart

 

I became a monster lusting for another

I became a demon forgetting all those years

I became the thing others looked down upon

 

I can't take back what happened

I can't take back the day I said "I do"

I can't take back when she walked into the room

 

I hope you understand I meant what I said

I did not mean to lie

I did not mean to change

 

I hope you move on

I hope you find your happiness as I have found mine

I hope you meet the one who never lies

 

I became a lier 

But hopefully not to her

May my mistake not be repeated

And may you understand
