The Face of a Liar 🤥

The face of a liar

It was once a face that I had grown comfortable with

Someone who knew all about me,

A face that would look me in eyes,

Stare deeply into my soul

And profess his love,

Promise me sweet nothings

The face of a liar

It was once a face that was home to the sweetest pair of lips, Lips I looked forward to kissing,

Lips that I expected to speak truth,

Lips that promised to mend my broken heart,

Lips that whispered a hope of forever,

But what I got lasted no longer than a New York minute

The face of a liar,

It was once a face that spoke of building a future with me, spoke of marriage and children

Instead, this face I trusted wholeheartedly, lied to me,

Kept secrets from me and left me stranded

The face revealed its true colors, a black heart frozen over, with no chance being revived,

The face of a liar,

It was once a face that painted a picture so perfect to the outside world, But we both knew the ugly truth,

Misconstrued stories to help ease their own guilt,

Instead of facing the facts, they hid in the darkness,

Made me feel as though I was insane,

Dangerously second guessing myself to give them the benefit of the doubt,

The face of a liar,

It was once a face that was a source of comfort,

But soon became a face unfamiliar, one that turned its back to me, As if I never even existed in the first place,

A face that sought to point out my flaws yet take no blame for their own, a dream turned out to be a disappointment, nothing more than a failed fantasy
