Half the Truth

Half the Truth

A Poem by ScarlettTheDreamer

He smiles, you smile; he’s weaving you

He’s weaving you a precious lie.

‘My darling, my dear, I love you true!’

His words all new, his words all sly.

 

You harmonize your heart with his

You synchronize your thought and wish.

Never a love as pure as this

Your feelings, all, swish and squish.

 

One day he says he’ll marry you,

Keep you safe, and not let go

Before your heart could follow through,

The magic, it makes it overflow.

 

Time sleeps by, as you dream for it

Forgetting for once to think it twice.

For you’re in love, care not a bit,

As long as all the times are nice.

 

One night comes, like a head for the tail,

He speaks not a word to your face.

Your tears are out, for your heart is frail,

He has it still, and its out of place.

 

Anger is close, closer is grief,

As he lets you go for someone new.

Broken trust, broken belief,

You put them together, those pieces few.

 

Time still sleeps, on smiles and cries,

Nightmares ride along the day.

And just when you cross all these lies,

Another Romeo comes your way.

 

He smiles, you smile, what magic enfolds!

You lose your heart, you lose your mind.

You don’t look past those blindfolds

All your cares are left behind.

 

But my dear, you never learn

That magic is but set to fail!

Judge yourself, at every turn

Since there’s a head for every tail!

Outstanding poetry. The rhymes are perfect and the way you have penned down a third person's point of view of someone who never learns from her mistakes, is very impressive. I loved it. Excellent!

I simply HAD to favorite this and add it to my library! This is wonderful, in fact, its expert. If I could I'd give you the Noble Prize for Literature, or at least something as good for poetry. But maybe I'm biased and I like this simply because I can relate to this so well! One things for sure though: you have woven this very well, the rythm, the rhyme, and the meaning and sequence are all perfect! Well done!

Its hurt touching. I know why you wrote this. But its very fabulous so its not the big issue ,and the main issue is that its superb. And i don't have words to explain the hidden feelings of your words.
I love it. And i'm also waiting for your new words and for your book.

This is true to show that no love is perfect. People aren't who we first think they are. We always focus on who they are as we meet them, we never care to even think about their inner insecurities or issues. Soon, their true colors are surfaced and we regret ever falling for them in the first place, while wondering what we were thinking at the time we began falling.

Flow is awesome..i really liked it:)
made with strong thoughts and power..
most of the times when you flip the coin up..
no matter what the result appears..the only
thing matters is your thought that what you
want out of it:)
Keep Writing!!

Reminds me of Dorothy Parker's style. A head in the clouds story. Wisdom-filled and well written.

Hi! I am a crazy dreamer. I write simply because I love it. I believe that there's really no meaning to life, and its stupid to go about finding one. One day you're here, one day you're gone. One day .. more..
