The Last Lie She Told

A Poem by Missy Lorraine

The Last Lie She Told

~Missy Lorraine~

Once upon a time a long time ago
there were two boys and a girl.
She loved the first with all her heart
but was afraid to lose such a pearl.
The second boy she told she loved
to spare his feelings then.
Boy number one believed what she said
he left not being seen again.
The second boy he moved right in 
believing he had a chance.
But the girl could no longer stand 
to deal with his romance.
She told him how she truly felt
though she hurt his pride
She felt much better about herself
for no longer the truth did she hide
From then on out she told the truth
and the first boy he came back
So they lived most happily
For love did they no longer lack.

Thank you all once again for the beautiful reviews. I really appreciate them. This one and Fingers I had started writing almost a year ago, but got a little stuck. Just the other day I went back to finish them and they ended up being completely different from how I origionally invisioned them. But I think they changed for the best...You guys are wonderful!!

I like the twist in the poem and the very nice ending. Love can confuse us. Hard to regain our place again. Thank you for the excellent poem.
