Deception

August 9, 2008
By Sarah Chellew, St. Joesph, MO

truth covered
lies spilled smiles hovered
trust killed

love perils like the wilting of a rose
the upmost rising of anger posed
deception creeps; lies in the air
discomfort spindles through strands in your hair

truth covered
lies spilled
smiles hovered
trust killed

a storm blows over, identifying the cover
of what stands in the way of him becoming my lover
temptation brings sin that pulls him in
sadness takes what happiness can't defend

truth covered
lies spilled
smiles hovered
trust killed

as I sit here and think of his choices
I laugh at all of lifes courses
when one door closes one always opens
so i wait for new love and continued poems

truth covered
lies spilled
smiles hovered
trust killed

!!truth will come
lies my spill
smiles will open
trust will build!!
