**Please remember this was written when I was 19.
    I was a bit cynical and a lot attitude. **

I really don’t know what it is,
I sincerely long to write.
I only know I’m thinking of
men and their little lies.
They say they really love you so,
and they’d break down and cry.
That is how the romantic words
are molded into a lie.

“I’ll never want no one else,
You’re the only one I’ll ever need,”
Is what they’ll say to get their way,
so their ego they may feed.
“I’m never gonna let you go.
I’ll never love no other.”
How many times have you heard that,
when later they found another?

“I’d give my life to be with you.
I need you oh so much.”
When what they really wanted,
was just to feel your touch.
“I’ve never met a woman like you.
You’re truly one in a million.”
If you stop to count their lies,
you’ll find yourself in the billions.

“Let me shelter you with love.
I can make you happy.”
The next time I fall for one of the lies,
somebody, please slap me!
“I can love you like no one has.
What you need is a man.
I’m the one to show you love.
I’m the one who’ll understand.

No one’s ever made me feel the way
I feel when I’m with you.
You’re like wishing on a lucky star.
You know just what to do.
Everything you do is right.
You’re the one I’ve been searching for.
I want to give to you the love
ou should’ve received before.

Let me take away the pain
I know you’re feeling inside.
Let me erase the many nights|
I know you’ve sat and cried.
If you’ll give me half a chance,,
I know I could change your world.
It would make me very happy,
if you would be my girl.”

Or better yet, don’t you love
the way they try for life,
by saying that if you’ll give in,
then they will make you their wife?
As if we don’t have enough
problems to worry about
than to put up with these liars
wanting us to put out.

Why don’t they take their little lies
and crawl back under their rocks?
If I find the key they use,
I’ll put their lies in locks.
How would they like it if we did them
the way they like to do?
They would probably jump at the chance
and enjoy every minute too.

One thing I’d like to say to those
who like to use their lies.
You may get your way first time around,
but hey Liar, there’s always room for goodbyes.

  1. Oh how true your words are. It’s difficult to know who to trust when so many lie to get their own way. I am no exception, except that I had the fortune of having both the liar and the truthful in my life. My first husband showed me and proved to me that it’s alright to trust again. He was the light of my life and I beam with joy when I think of him and our memories together. Unfortunately he passed away, but I’m forever grateful to have had some time with him than none at all. I do hope that you have a great circle of people around you now. God bless you 🙏😊

    1. Praise the Lord for you having an honest relationship in your life. Since having written this almost 30 years ago the Lord has taught me a lot about honesty and trusting people coming through Him first. There are a lot of dishonest people, but I need to hold them accountable, call them out, and/or walk away from dishonest relationships when possible, and trust Him to deal with those that I must work around, be related to, etc when unable to avoid them. My focus needs to be on Him because the constant dishonesty around me can cause me to question Him, and THAT is the issue I must work on, including being honest with God and myself when dishonesty is sometimes myself not admitting to fear or unreasonable emotion regarding unhealthy relationships. God helps me to be strong enough and wise enough to be honest with myself about what the genuine dishonesty around me can do to my thinking towards healthy relationships and honest people, including Him and myself. I am blessed with some of the most honest and godly people, starting with the Father of honesty in my God, my conscience which I can trust better from being in His Word, holding myself and others accountable, and allowing myself to be honest and reasonable with how things affect me emotionally, and allowing myself to be emotional when it is reasonable.
