I Loved Your Lies

Updated on June 19, 2013

I loved your lies right from the start

Although I was never really fooled

I was more than willing to play a part

In the fantasy world you ruled

Perhaps I loved the lies you told

Because then I could lie too

It was like a secret pass

To escape all that was true

You were the king of contradiction

I was the queen of vagary

We'd both learned so long ago

That lies can set you free

And the lines that people try to draw

Between what is fake and what is real

Is less about some absolute thing

And more about the way they feel

So there was truth in all our lies

And when we set each other free

We never regretted the time we spend

Laughing off reality

      When I was younger lies that the guys told always made girls feel wonderful. We always knew they were lies but they were fun and for awhile we wanted to believe them. Then in time through the lies the real truth was always revealed. Great poem!

      Liked you poem. Sometimes lies are better than the truth for some people and others believe what they lie about.

      You seem to me to be a Queen of emotional words centering on human sentiments. Good writing and it was in depth too.
