Choice

People choose to see what they wish,
until faced with concrete reality that can’t be ignored,
not that the past ever should have been,
just for a taste of the present; brief moments with him,
Liars are good at what they do –
they deflect their behavior back onto you,
when it’s not in your nature,
they know it’s true,
but they know how to use,
that is their truth.

        I know! But, when you figure this out, you have a chance to prevent it from happening again. I guess there is a lesson we learn in being burned by liars.
