Poem: I wish I could deny.

Updated on January 10, 2015

I wish I could deny

I wish I could deny the joy of knowing you,

I wish I could deny and told myself you would never lie.

I wish I could deny this angst from leaving you,

I wish I could deny and never chose to say goodbye.

And I wish you wont deny and not make the choice to lie..

When I went and asked you about that other guy..

You smiled in nonchalance towards my stony countenance

waving off my worries with simple condescendence.

In the weeks that followed after,

You became too busy to entertain my calls

Too busy to even meet up for once at all.

Then the night came when I saw on face book

this 'romantic picture' of you kissing that other guy..

I guess I knew I can't deny that this love I had was just a lie.

      Thanks for your comments:) True, I guess some times it happens for a reason otherwise I would not have been able to meet someone more suitable for me haha.

      This poem says so much with so few words! I think we all have experienced the pain of lies in our relationships. Very well done.

      Hi Issac, thanks for your kind comments, been browsing through yours but have not had the luxury of time to read more. This poem was written from a personal experience haha even now the memory remains rather raw and painful.
