Surrounded by Lies…

I am in darkness, no light can I see,

Surrounded by half truths, and whole lies,

Words I hear, just take my life away,

I am like the flower, in darkness it dies


I am surrounded by lies…

Trust, belief, just words no meaning,

I feel betrayed, by my own shadow,

Life, withering away before me slowly,

I am numb, unable to feel my tears flow

I am surrounded by lies…

Hope, confidence, are a thousand miles away,

I am tied down, by my thoughts alone,

Misery is my companion, now always with me,

Happiness, that is now from my life long gone


I am surrounded by lies…

I believe in me, yet only few others do,

They talk about me, behind my back,

Why life turns so fast, I know not so far,

Of my life, I am beginning to lose track

I am surrounded by lies…

I am in darkness, no light can I see,

Only a mirage of trust, of support for me,

A candle I had, has put itself out,

No voices have I now, no courage to shout


I am surrounded by lies…

This is not usually my area. I am usually the optimist, but today these feelings of lost trust, betrayal by a very close friend, sorrow have all eclipsed that optimism. My heart speaks here… not a work of fiction…

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. The words dies and lies go very well together. I like the poem but it’s sad. Most poetry on blogs are sad.

  2. Dont lose faith in the goodness of people due to the backbiting by others. Life is a new battle everyday.Come back to your usual self.

  3. Leo, Friendship has its ups and downs.Misunderstandings do happen.Its just a few dry twigs and the smallest of sparks that have the ability to create a forest fire.So Bfore this spat escalates to unimaginable proportions, confront your “betrayer” Get it cleared up.Don’t give up on a friend just Bcoz someone’s been rumour-monging.If you have definite proof that you’re right, kick his ass, and ditch him, just the Way he deserves.:)Very painful poem. The picture succeeds in increasing the gloom 7 fold.

  4. what happened?? :(such things happen… try to make it better… talk and see if things are as bad as you think they are… and if things are beyond repair, well.. then, you know you deserve better! ask him/her to go to hell!i don;t know if that’s good advice but well.. that’s what i did.

  5. Ah!Lies within the lies a grain of truthPatience my friend always bears fruit :-)A pale shade of white awaits the hopefulEven in the bleakest of the phase with eyes dolefulHead the sound of silence full of lightIf not anywhere else, it burns in your heart, bright 🙂

  6. Thaz very sad. If he/she is a good friend who knows you well, things will be fine. Sometimes we fights among friends and just forget even before the day gets over.

  7. very moving. nice place u hav here. :)hope come out of the sorrow soon. lots of friends in the world to live for. :)cheers.

  8. tatzz dark poetry,, wid hard hittin lines.. n ofcourse u speak ur heart here so tat makes it even more touchin.. as they say “time heals”.. there’s alwayzz light at the end of the tunnel.. betrayal makes us lose hope and faith in people but it also teaches us some important lessons,, i think.. :-)Wish u good luck,, 🙂
