Read My Lips, Not His Lies

Updated on June 15, 2014

Follow your path

...pick up the pieces...don't falter, stay positive.

Why must I do DUMB,

Self destructive things,

To obtain a REVOLVING false positive,

Resulting only in FAILURE!


Hoping MY HAPPINESS

Lay beyond the ruins,

And the rubble of the path,

I CHOSE TO MAKE...


Even when the signs say bold and clearly,...


....................WRONG WAY,


.................................DETOUR,


..........DEAD END,


.......................GO AWAY!


Gee Wiz!!!

Well, (you) look at me,

With that sultry expression stamped all over

Your crease riddled grimace

Feigning those invented INNOCENT EYES.


Filling my head With so many made up Fairy tales...

All those dreams I so longingly wished for,

I listen to you REGURGITATE the same 'ol, same 'ol

and wanting to believe they ALL come True

.

You Lead me to BELIEVE,

All of your downright Nasty lies.


But deep Down inside,

I KNOW,

That although I can clearly See your face,

You must be wearing a DISGUISE!


Being Constructive, NOT Destructive

Is the ONLY path for ME to follow.

Be a LEADER and read my lips,

NOT your incessant LIES.


Discover the underlying truths,

To avoid having to recover.

From destitute FAILURE....

AGAIN.

................and AGAIN.

................................and AGAIN.

...................................................and again.

Not a VICTIM.....

, Not a Surviver... ............................just ME
, Not a Surviver... ............................just ME | Source

    Yes, you are right, we have certainly all been hurt. I am glad this is a reminder of past hurts and not a recent one.

    Hello my friend Jodah!!! That could be such a rhetorical question....has someone hurt me..... my answer, a resounding, "YES, of course".... Haven't we all been hurt at one time or another? I have learned from all of my relationships, all which have ended, mostly amicably, but a small handful negatively. And it is those few that have made me re-evaluate my choices in men, and attempt to learn from my past mistakes. Thankfully I am not currently "going through it" but this piece is a simple reminder of my promise to myself to keep my eyes open and to protect my heart closely.... just for a while.

    Good to see a new hub from you MissCue, but I didn't get notification. This is quite a unique poem and it seems very personal. Has someone hurt you with lies? Voted up.
