One of you is lying

Above: Gift of a stained heart, 2009

A poem by Dorothy Parker

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying -
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.

Note: Thank you miss Laura Drake Chambers for bringing my attention to this poem.
