Best Poem of Viola Grey

The Lies We Tell

The lies we tell,
stories we sell
to keep this love alive.
Truth betrays
what we say
in order to survive.
What emotions shed
are easily misread
when blind eyes open.
How we pretend
time spent
keeps souls unbroken.
If I really love you,
as I say I do,
goodbye should be said.
But, no - I'll cajoul,
make you a fool,
anchor you here instead.

6/3/08

*for my friend.

Embers

Every ember of the fire
clouds a deeper, darker desire.
Orange glow fades as grey
upon our love another day.
I am but one in our hearts,
together we are torn apart
and nothing lasts another day
when - knees wearied - we replay
our begging words

[Hata Bildir]
