There is darkness in lightness
A whisper within a lie
The truth evades the one who waits
And trust me, he’s no spy.
When it comes to eluding and evading
He is more than just a whiz
You’ll know a few tiny facts
But you’ll never know who he is.
Tears spread across a page
As I’ve written every betrayal
The thing about lying to a smart woman
Is she’s always on your tail.
Then there is the romantic poet
With more women that he can count
He handed out praise like candy
But never gave anyone a discount.
There is also within this the angry one
So full of angst and rage
He could read the most beautiful book
And he’d always burn the page.
I could be in the depths of talking
He’d walk away like he does
Then comes back the next day all sweetly
While my day is all abuzz.
I was thinking of just walking away
But a taunting is more fun
Though in my world I’m kinda harsh
This time I’ll forgo the gun.
The spy can keep his lies
The poet can keep his ladies
The angry one can keep his disdain
I’ll be here drinking wine with Hades.
