White Lies
“why weren’t you there when I needed you?”
I asked for her reasoning
Again and again and again
I expected the truth,
It wasn’t given.
Moving first to the left,
Than to the right,
And to the floor.
Her eyes never meeting mine.
So I asked again,
In a calm voice
Looking straight into her brown eyes
But the same thing was heard.
Nothing but white lies.
The anger inside of me
Was like a forest fire,
That couldn’t be tamed.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
The clock in my mind couldn’t stop
Waiting for her reply.
The tone of my voice escalated to something
That resembled an alarm,
To send a warning,
But yet again the intruder didn’t stop.
The trust in her was lost
All the memories, were gone in the wind.
