How can you be angry
that I don’t trust you
when everything you say
turns out to be a lie?

Don’t you know
when you tell every girl
she is the only one for you,
you are telling all of them
they are nothing special?

Do you really think
after all you’ve done
I would ever let you
hurt me again?

I don’t need your answers
to my questions
because words are worthless
from your lying mouth.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  4. I totally agree with the sentiment behind the poem! Words should be reserved for true feelings and not spoken casually or else they ARE lies! Hope all is well. Raining buckets today… Forced downtime! 😘
