I wish I hadn’t lied

You come to me as sunset cools,
I greet you with a smile.
You lean in close to kiss my cheek
With old-world charming style.

You talk to me, I want to hear
But I just watch your eyes.
You tell bad jokes, I laugh at them
And fumble my replies.

You hold my hand and listen as
I tell you all my lies.
You’ve heard them all before, or just
Politely hide surprise.

The waiter comes to clear away,
The dark wind plays outside.
You’ve been so kind, I’ve been a fool.
I wish I hadn’t lied.

Time is our currency, so spend it wisely. Shona x
