Poem: Lied

You lied to me.

You told me this was all you needed.

There was nothing out there for you.

This house was you home.

That was not case.

When the storm came, and clouds drifted apart you walked right through them.

There was no hesitation for you to leave, and I could not beg you to stay.

A window was open, and you jump right through.

You lied to me.

I was not the thing that kept you warm.

I was cold and bitter and never left a good taste.

I was everything that you never wanted.

You were everything that I need.

We were the things that made people dream.

I lied to you.

I was never the thing that made you happy.

I was never the one to give you grace.

I was the storm that made the clouds part.

The heat that burns the trees.

The thing that held the wind abbey.

I was the one that made you not want to stay.

I lied to you.

We lied to each other.
