Ever been told something so hurtful you wish it was a lie, because for it to be true meant you lost something precious.

First of all I'd like to say this is Not at all like most poems I write. It has more of a free rhythm too it as well as beat. Hope you enjoy.

~: Tell Me Lies :~

*

Game . Set . Match.

Here we go.

Who is she?

You don't know. .

Around in circles horses run.

It's just a game if you have fun.

*

Tell Me Lies.

Don't brake my heart with your disguise.

Don't tell me truths

when its not backed up by proof.

Make me a fool like you always do.

Tell Me Lies

So I won't see the worst of you.

*

Another Swing.

Perfect Strike.

What do you mean?

Where were you last night?

Is my pain worth your petty pried?

And my heart, a piece you tossed aside.

*

Tell Me Lies.

Don't brake my heart with your disguise.

Don't tell me truths

when its not backed up by proof.

Make me a fool like you always do.

Tell Me Lies

So I won't see the worst of you.

*

La la

la la la

La la

la la la

*

It's not perfect, I don't expect it to be.

But why can't you just once be honest with me.

If this is a break up then let it be clean.

Stop treating me like some girlfriend machine.

*

Tell Me Lies.

Don't brake my heart with your disguise.

Don't tell me truths

when its not backed up by proof.

Make me a fool like you always do.

Tell Me Lies

So I won't see the worst of you.

*

I think this very good that shows true emotions of a broken heart. I tend to like free verse poems better than the original 4 line stanza form. Great job, and keep up the good work. L.I.T.

lol thanks :) I do generally keep to very structured versus, but this one just wouldn't work that way for me.

Great work, it's kinda a song? "It's just a game if you have fun." Excellent work with metaphors, like the "Another swing." This piece is really abstract and creative. I like it :)

I really liked this poem, very nice flow and feeling. One of the biggest things I look for in poetry is flow, and I think you're quite good with it.

I feel like this poem is about being cheated on? Maybe I'm wrong, but that's how interpreted it, it's great take on it either way, great job.

yes, being cheated on was the inspiration, as well as being lied to all the time.

Parts of this are so easily relatable. I feel the sort-of numbness you are expressing. Simple, but expressive.
