Cheated, betrayed,
that's what I've done to you
I should've cried, should've stayed,
I understand if we're through.

The truth was right there,
in the back of my mind.
You might've even cared,
comforted me, been kind,

but I was so scared,
how could I say the truth?
I have never dared
to tell the horrors of my youth.

So I locked them up tight,
told another lie.
I did what was right,
though it urges me to cry.

You don't need to know,
the memories are for me.
I wish I could let them go,
just let someone see,

but they're my curse,
so leave me be,
until my ride in the hearse,
the death of me.
Awful, I know, but I had to get it off my chest...so...yeah...a poem....about what I call my neccesary lying.

You'll always be a great writer regardless of what others think. But you'll never know how your writing may affect others until you really share it.:) Beyond the internet lol.:) You've been given this talent for a reason whether you believe it or know it or not.

Wow! This brought a tear to my eye. Reminded me of a mixture of my ex-husband (Lying cheating dog) and myself (secrets from my childhood). Very good piece of art, my friend. I was feeling the emotion while I was reading your poem.
