Tied tongues and lost love,

Tied tongues and lost love,

Your lies slip out of your mouth

Easier than a thousand truths.

I thought I was worthy of some honesty

But evidently you held a dissenting opinion.

Our case won’t be in court,

Just played out in regretted words

And you, well, were never one to mince them.

Deceit is what makes my heart ache,

Mistakes can be forgiven but

Rarely, rarely, can trust be re-won.

That’s the problem, you see,

I can forgive but likely not welcome you into my arms once more,

Leaving me Left alone wishing for how it was before.
