the camera never lies

never lies by phil burns

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

the camera never lies

a silver moon a bright blue sky
the sea as dark as night
trees dressed up in verdant green
what colour are you inside

the waves whisper across the sand
the wind whispers a sigh
my heart whispers a thought of love
your heart whispers a lie

the flowers stretch and raise their heads
it’s springtime in Paradise
I watch the birds in pairs build nests
I watch as your love dies

a red sail flaps and disappears
across the curved horizon
your red lips now so rarely smile
when they curve it is surprising

the camera never lies they say
I don’t think that is true
I see the face you turn to me
I don’t think that is you
