Bathed Lies

Bathed Lies

A Poem by Destinyxi

Bathed Lies


You’re blinded by her lies

Can’t tell truth from not

And you’re so loyal to her

She’s the only one you see

But while you see her

She’s looking elsewhere

Her eyes never quite touching yours


She gets away with it

Because you just don’t want to see it

To notice it

That’s your loss

Your fault

You can get someone who sees

Only you

Looks at

Only you

But you stick with her


You can’t handle the truth

So you mask the lies

Bathing them in ponds of truth

But aren’t you lying to yourself

By hiding the truth?


You deserve better

You can get better

What is it about her

That draws you?


You can’t change a player

You can’t change a flirt

You can bear with it

Bear with her

Ignore the fact that

While she’s with you

She’s just not


You can’t change her

But you can change the fact that

You’re wasting your time

With her


So flee

Run away

Cut her out

Because by keeping her around

You’re losing your ability

To separate the truth

From the lies

Author's Note

One of my readers wanted a poem about girls who cheat, considering I'm always writing about guys who cheat. (woops :P)

it's all in the eyes...when they dart to and fro...there are problems...

truth looks you straight into the eyes and doesn't waver, not one bit...

what did the Eagles sing "you can't hide your lyin' eyes"

there ain't no way...

nice to see this from the other side...i dealt with nice to know i'm not the only one who felt the uncertainty every time i looked at her turn away.

good piece

A great poem. Sometimes it's not even cheating, but just the manipulative ways that girls can have that can be cause for lies. Well done. I feel a little bitterness and frustration in this piece.

Funny this; I've been in a relationship for nearly eleven years and I have never once cheated on him, but I saw a lot of myself in this woman you're writing about...and, had you not included the author's note, I would have thought you were writing this piece to justify your own reasons for wanting to be with the woman's man *laugh* I was going to say, just because the eyes wander does not mean the heart strays ;-) But, well, my interpretation was totally off the mark, so, I'll just say "Really good write; thanks for sharing this with us" :-D

Tis a true portrait, and we deceive ourselves in order to hold onto the "prize".....which turns out to be an empty box...

This is a profound poem. Women only cheat due to their declining interest in their prince charming. Being deceitful only covers up the fact that love don't live here anymore. I'd rather be cleansed with the truth than being bathed with lies concerning my attraction with someone. I enjoyed this poem overall though. Great job. :)

Well, I don't really see this as one of your strongest works, but it's good and it is always fun to try things from a little different perspective.
We all feel so sorry for this guy, I assure you, good job!
