It Was All a Lie

My Broken Heart

It started with a lie,

and quickly became

a series of half-truths

and whole-exaggerations.

I didn’t know what

to believe anymore;

I got lost in the

twisted web he wove.

He caught me like

his ensnared prey

because I desperately

wanted to trust him.

It started with a lie

and ended with goodbye

when his lips spoke

those deadly words.
