& none of this

was a lie

I told you I loved you

wanted to be with you

saw that look in your eye

of you wanting to believe

walking in woods forever

talking to the trees

& none of this

is a lie

I listened to your words

heard other men’s alibis

when I wanted you to be

sweet angel in my mind life

holding me close

washing clean my soul

we passed so close together

fast cars in country lanes

never quite coming together

your past in one direction

my future heading another

& none of this

was a lie

& that is the tragedy

of life
