*When Love Becomes A Lie*



 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


In the begining was great

But towards a month passing

I started to get a feeling of hate

And wondering if we would be lasting


You tell me you didn't do a thing

My gut tells me a different feeling

To my heart forgiveness I try to bring

But no matter how hard it tries

My heart is having a hard time healing 

At night....Every night it cries

I know of the hints they are revealing

I pray none of them are true lies


I promise you from the start

That I'd stick by you no matter what

But you also promised you wouldn't break my heart

And now it's going back to being half shut

It's beaking apart


I will keep to my promise we won't ever part

I hold on to what you have told me 

But if when our love becomes a lie 

I will have no choice but to set you free

I don't want to really though

Because my heart will then fully die 

And I will be left with pain

With nights of tears to show

And I'll be alone....all alone

I'll be left to cry

My heart then turns to stone 


All because love became a lie 

The promise you made to me 

You never were ever going to keep

The love you said you gave

You promised you would never leave

My heart got broken my chest caved


Your words you lead me to believe

All that came out of your mouth was true

But now my heart bleeds

Of pain and agony

And I'm crying on my knees

How much I'm broken apart

Don't tell me you didn't know

I promised you I wouldn't leave

But your love you no longer show

Maybe it's time you give me back my heart


You said you would stick by my side 

For me you'd always care 

But I see now that was a lie all along

You lead me on and that's not fair

Maybe we don't belong


You told me your love would never end

You said you'd always be faithful

And always your love you'd send

But you no longer call me beautiful

Now we just feel like friends

My love I don't think with you I can share

I believe now you were pretend



*I'm All Alone*



 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


I can not trust a soul

I'm all alone

Closing my heart is my goal

My feelings I'm turning to stone


Devil in disguise 

Afraid to love

Always telling me lies

Always a push or shove

I can not confide in anyone

I sit here and cry

I can't even go out to have fun

My mind wants to die


I don't want to be close to you 

You treant me like a friend

But its not true

You sit there and pretend

I only wish I knew

Before I let you in my heart

Not I sit here down and blue

I'm always falling apart


My soul hurts everyday

Even my spilt personality hates me 

If it weren'I got writes t for my daughters

I wouldn't be here anyway

No one anyway with me sees

On what I say no one cares

Your love with me any more

You no longer share

Feelings you don't want to store

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I got writers block again.. have to come back to it later



She always sat to the side
Alone and wondering
Looking at the others
Always observing


Why did they all pretend
To be so happy
When the feelings on the inside
Were all so dark and nasty


Why did he pretend
That nothing was wrong
When they broke his glasses and
His head fell with a bong


Why did she pretend
To be so dumb
When she was a genius
But her mind became numb


Why did the couple pretend
That they were so in love
When behind closed doors
The girl was beat and shoved


Why did the child pretend
Things were okay at the house
When the mother screamed and hit
And he cowered like a mouse


Why did they all pretend
To be so happy
Wondered the girl to the side
As she looked on sadly

The Real You

My Love

Promise me you'll never change
Never disguise who you are
Don't pretend to be someone you're not
Always be yourself
Because I want you to be happy
I want to know the real you

Tight Lipped


I don’t know what to say

I just seen some stuff

That would make

Her say “I have had enough”


But here I sit typing

Instead of running my mouth

So I sit and I watch

Waiting for it all to go south


Like it never will

I’ve seen them go through stuff

That most would throw their hands up

And say, “That’s it I’ve had enough”


And I will never talk about this

If I do I am wrong for even thinking such a thing

And I know they have given me such leniency

So I go on pretending to have a reason to sing
