CLOTHED WITH LIES


In the unkindness of an evening filled with thunderstorms, a feeling of aversion came over my weeping spirit.

In that hour, thirst and hunger were much sweeter than the bitter taste of betrayal sitting upon my lips…from the flavorless kiss of the woman whom I thought loved me.

The beautiful star that once brought her to me now hides itself behind clouds of darkness filled with never-ending rain.

My loving heart has been ridiculed by smiles of deceit, along with the scent of a stranger upon my lover's person.

Sadly, I shall accept my sorrow and cry to my heart's fulfillment, but joyfully, I will celebrate the victory of knowledge that enlightened my heart and caused me to turn away from the woman clothed with lies.

  7. Hi Andy- you describ this nearly universal experience so well. It's odd, but if you read my entry it's almost the same, though written from the opposite perspective.

  11. "In that hour, thirst and hunger were much sweeter than the bitter taste of betrayal that sat upon my lips...from the flavorless kiss of the woman I thought loved me." You can't help to feel sorry for the man who is betrayed by this woman. His words are so sensitive in how you are able to express his feelings. Touching!
