This isn’t real, I cannot feel,

Your lies are fine, don’t make it real.

Your words remind me, what you did,

Your words hurt me within.

Keep your lies, no promises,

There’s no more compromises.

You don’t say it out-loud, your lips sealed,

Numb inside, I’ll never fully heal.

*****

The music starts, covers silence,

I don’t want to hear your weak defense.

Broken promises shatter,

The shards so sharp scatter.

Didn’t mean the words you said,

I called you out and you fled.

Pretending you don’t hear me hence,

I’m leaving, no reprehending.

****

Look around!

    awesome poem. I love how you worked in “reprehending.” That was the real wow moment for me.

      Hehe thank you. Rhymezone is really useful. It doesn’t always give me the correct word, but often starts me thinking how other words sound similar. Thanks for reading Melinda 🙂

        Yes! I love them and have had the same frustrations. Some obvious rhymes are missing and some “words” they suggest aren’t words at all. You have to take their suggestion and refine it.

        Yes you are right about that. At least it helps the process along!
