Fallacy

She asked if he loved her
To which he replied,
“I love you so much,
It just… fills me inside!”
“Will you ever leave me?”,
She questioned anew.
He said, “Darling, there’s no way
I could live without you!
It will be a week with four Thursdays,
When pigs start to fly,
Or a cold day in hell,
Before I tell you goodbye.”
His words touched her soul,
And his eyes touched her heart,
She was entirely convinced
There was no way they’d part.
So, she gave him her all
Till nothing was left.
She gave him the good,
The better and best.
But, when life came crashing,
The fallacies were shown,
It was then she found out
He wasn’t really her own.
She’d though he was prince charming,
And so romantically loquacious!
But he was really just a frog,
Being pathologically mendacious.
But like a spell was removed,
And scales fell from her eyes,
She can now stay a mile off
And spot a man telling lies.

One Second

All I wanted was
One second more
To show you I am stronger
Than how you left me before.

All I wanted was 
Just one second
To show you my heart’s now
My deadliest weapon.

All I wanted was
One second to add
To the day I saw you 
And you thought I was mad.

Just one more second
And I would have carefully hid all,
My broken heart, my pain, 
My eyes pleading at you to call,

You would have thought I was happy
That I’d moved on with my life,
If I had one more second,
Just one second more.

Writing 101: Day 4

Reflections

After almost three decades
Have I lived much of life?
Have I done what I wanted
And made the right choice?

When I think back a decade,
Or maybe one and a half,
Did I think I’d be here
To live and to laugh?

Life doesn’t always go
The way we think it should
But I know that whatever comes
I must give thanks for what’s good.
