No truth I’d known holds true; not anymore,
All life’s apparently fuelled by lies.
Betrayals too don’t turn relations sore
All depends on how well your deeds you hide.
Many lives in the name of privacy
Parallelly lived, never crossing paths.
It’s the same whether you see or not see
The truth’s ignored lest it tears lives apart.
You speak of a trust that needs to exist
It’s nothing more than turning a blind eye.
Oblivion’s required to subsist
Other’s you won’t, how much ever you try.
Limitless ‘love’ you now give and receive
Expecting deceptions, you now deceive.
