                                  The Lie


My love and I, lie with each other every night

and pretend  not to know that we lie.

But, though I simply smile

and say nothing when she says that

she lies with no other,

I know it's a lie.

Nor will I deny that I equally lie with others too.

I lie with her

and she, with me,

to her mum, about the

bad traffic that makes her late every night

and to papa, about the

constant increase in my school fees


Our love for each other

makes us lie together, every night  and

conveniently ignore the consequences of lying.

Yet, why must we be blamed for this lying that is

a part of man's nature?

Lie, the lie

Those who lie too much
do not often get laid... :-)

Lying certainly is a part of man's, and woman's, nature. We all make our beds and lie in them.

Great use of words in an intriguing poem.

Well put!

WE all lie. Some lie big some lie small. Sometimes we forget things and don't lie all all.
Reviewed by Nordette Adams 9/1/2014
Nice creative play on words also reminiscent of confessional poetry. :-)
