Snow White Liar

by June Nash

.

smooth talking man greets lovely lady

she doesn’t care that he seems shady

.

like sweets on tongue, she eats up his lies

he praises her wit, beauty and eyes

.

they may be truths, but how does one know

when they’re piled high in drifts like snow

.

starved for attention, desperate for love

into the snow she drops her white glove

.

it’s outline she sees, though very dim

like truth in the lies spoken by him

.

his weak excuses, flakes upon flakes

deep down she knows they’re all lies he makes

.

with all snow white lies, there comes a day

when truth shows through, lies melt away

.

from warm sweet spun words ice only felt

watching with sadness, her snowman melt
