Deceit (12-4-05)

You broke my heart

and tore it apart,

but underneath it all,

you didn't know.

Did I act so well

that you couldn't tell?

Did my eyes hide

the searing pain?

Did my smile deceive

your subtle glances?

Or was it simply

you chose not to see

my heartache

and misery?

It's possible

I deceived us both.

For still my heart

knows not why,

over you

I did not cry.
