Poem : If You Could Have Lied


If you could have lied
Then maybe I could have stayed
Never knowing what I know now
Never feeling betrayed.
Not having to switch off my love
Not having to let go
No shattering denouement
No new defriended foe.
I’ve spent years feeling nausea
I’ve hurt and snarled and cried
All this could have been blown away
Oh, if you could have lied.
