Lies

Thank me for all that I've done for you,
Only if you will forgive me for all that
I've done to you.

You asked me if you will do.
And in what I believed was honesty,
I said you would. It could have just been our kisses.

Maybe I meant your smile was nice 
To wake up in the mornings to,
Or maybe I meant you'd look great with me 
When we go out.

Perhaps I meant I'd earn for both of us
If you were a stay-at-home husband
Or maybe I just said it because 
Dreams only last as long as you’re asleep.

You express my thoughts which I find hard to do.
That is the reason I love to be with you.
Every word reflects the honest truth,
A passion coupled with your youth.

Beautifully written. I especially loved the ending - dreams indeed last only as long as you are asleep. When you wake up, it is time to *realize* those dreams.

Flint Stones: Lovely :) So good to see you here.

S: It's intriguing that the beginning imressed you. For me, that is the most important bit of this poem.

Kiran: Exactly, and I thought it was best left to interpretation. So glad you came up with that.

UD: Always good to see you here but this has been, by far, the most flattering comment. :) Thrilled. Hope you're well.

Raj : Thanks, Raj.

notgogol: Idu fiction da! I can't keep tagging my poetry "fiction", makes me seem demented. All is A-okay! If it's not trust me to make it so. But I am very glad you stopped by.

Shailaja : :) It's strange how... never mind. On email :)

CL aka TE : Tanks, men.

I reiterate, you are a poet TRQ.

Your lines conjure images, are free to be interpreted as each chooses to, dwell in that realm between reality and thoughts.

Love them.

Oooh...how true (what The Visitor said too). 'Lies', I like very much. In fact most of what you do, I like! We met briefly, but you 'almost' changed my life! And now, you make me wanna do more and live more...
