You saw my heart

I believed you
were different. I believed you
saw my heart. I believed you
would stay because I believed you
from the start. I believed you
every day and I believed you
until you left.

You lied
about everything. You lied
about each part. You lied
perfectly because you lied
from the start. You lied
every day and you lied
until you left.

I believed you
would stay because you lied
every day and you lied
as you lay, my lover. I believed you,
as you lay, my friend. I believed you,
my lover. You lied.

You saw my heart.
You left.

About this piece

Here I played with patterns, rhythm and repetition. It's a reflection on being betrayed by someone who promised honest and loving friendship. (I believed him. He lied.)
