Reduced to Lies

Reduced to Lies

A Poem by Sarah_Allen
"

How our words mean nothing now... a poem to someone

"
Verse 1
Tell me, did you love him?
Or did you lie about that too-
Smiled to our face, "Sister-in-law"
Lied through your perfect teeth,
Oh whats your worth when your worth is lies?
Its not an exterior look, but what hides inside,
You're gold plated words, chipped way to hollow
Still you follow...



Chorus
Whats it mean anymore?
When your word means nothing real,
A broken promise wedding vow,
Or a lie about your feels,
You made yourself worthless,
by making your words worthless too,
and what good is a human,
stealing what meant nothing to you,


Verse 2
Oh whats your words when your words mean nothing?
You take random phrases and add the charm,
You destroyer of words; stealing meanings,
Crushing sentences and wreaking harm,
You made yourself worthless,
because you reduced your words to lies,
Oh whats your life when your life means nothing?
A life like that is better off to die,


End
....oh dear liar, 
My brother made the promise too,
Stood at the altar, excited,
And said the words "I do"
....Oh dear liar, 
You made a liar of him too,
When you cheated on his soft heart,
And his love turned red to blue,
....Oh dear liar, 
One lie sets up another to fall,
My brother thought it'd last forever,
But you lied and took it all,

You made a liar of my brother, 
when he gave his word to you,
you turned and left him broken, 
and took his promise too

Ok. Interesting structure. You capture the anger felt by the protagonist that her brother has been let down by the woman he adored and married. The rhyming scheme seems somewhat haphazard? I found the first verse and the end most enjoyable.

hahahaha yeah! thank you so much John for stopping by and taking the time to review :P Im so happy!
No why is expressing your emotions stupid. Clearly someone did something to earn this well thought out poem. Quite frankly I would have written a dirty limerick and called it good

Ah, the act of hiding the real truth especially to take gain something in your favour. Nasty, mean and corrupt. Well said and stated Sarah.

thank you dawn :D
Deception is never pretty no matter how you wrap it up.
If the deception is close to home, wow then it hurts harder.
But great songs are always about broken love.

this is not stupid...it depicts very well the animosity and resentment family members can feel towards someone who lies and destroys a heart within that family.
yes, to music...this would be very good...like a steady throbbing beat...almost a monotonous beat would work so well.
the point driven home...another running roughshod over another who has committed...

Musically revealing relationship deception - nice verses and a great chorus ( or perhaps the bridge)! It would be interesting to see the manuscript, tabs or chord structure to the song... thanks for sharing..:-)
