Heart breaker

Heart breaker

tear maker,

more than one way

to be unfaithful.

Break traditions

un-make commitment,

steal the date,

lead yourself astray.

Lie a million tiny
ways,

deception dripping
from the tip of your tongue,

blame cast hither and
yon.

You breeze through
falsehood

like a seagull over
sand,

think I don’t see

your sleight of hand.

Our love, you say, is
sacrosanct.

Your mistress, you
think,

is hidden.

She is your lies,

your sweet empty
spaces,

the words you never
say.
