You Lied To Me

Autumn leaves
Graced the trees
Gentle breeze

Inside of doors
Hand in hand
On your finger
I placed a wedding band

Forever and ever
Til death do us part
You promised to love me
With all of your heart

Times grew hard
As they always do
Bad mistakes
I made a few

You decided forever
Was too much to give
You decided my crimes
Were too much to forgive

You ended it all
Made yourself a liar
Two separate ways
Situation dire

I’m healing now
Deliberate and sure
I’ve moved on
Through this life detour

Life goes on
As it always does
Head held high
As it always was

Inspired by this week’s Trifecta Challenge.

  3. It seems wrong to say that the story of a marriage that then falls apart is lovely, but you’ve written it so well that it just seems, well, lovely and gentle. Maybe I’m just tired.

  4. Not only do I love this poem and the use of ‘deliberate’, I love the fact that your head remains high. I applaud your strength!!

  6. She messed up big time. I’m sorry she hurt you, but I’m glad you have come out a better, kinder man with your head held high.

  8. What Melanie said… her loss. Big loss. Some people let moments of weakness overpower them, and forget the big picture; they let go of that foundation and promise. Sad, very sad, but I am glad that you are healing with your head high.

  11. His willingness and success to heal make me wonder what sort of mistakes he made, and if they were bad enough to warrant a separation. Very good writing.

    Thanks for linking up!

  12. I also wonder what the crimes were that were unforgivable. So sad when love dissolves into separate ways.
