Deceptive Love Quotes
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
The looks outside might not be the same on the inside.
It might have a sweet-bitter taste.
Looks can be deceiving; Simple
Even at that
life is full of layers
Tear and sweetness abound in the circle of life
But life is also full of beautiful colours
Never judge a book by the cover
For the taste of the pudding is in the eating
Beware of two-faced friends
All sweet looking on the outside
While they pack a punch of venom on the inside
Practice what you preach
and make your words honourable
l am who l am
for what you see is what you get
No time for a double standard.
That which makes you laugh
…can make you cry
Beware of friends!
Those you follow can bring you sorrow.
…before you leap!
The Egret is white-feathered
But its skin is black leather.
Who would think that you that made me blush and shy
Would later make me cry
Please, tell the generations after me
that they shouldn’t judge a book by its cover
As the judge hit the gavel to say “it’s over”
Please tell my son the world is not as it seems
For impunity blur it’s shine and makes it dim.
Even the apple of your eye
Can still make you cry!
Oh, what radiance, I obliged
Little did I know hidden within was spite
Smiles on the outside
Tears and pain on the inside
Held tightly hoping to abide
The beauty I tot was a guide
Hidden within was a sting denied
Wish I still had the choice to decide
Hood does not make the Monk
Thus pepper and honey
Though in colour they rhyme
But in taste, they differ
Friends and enemy has no separate identity
They are both clothed with human skin.
Your best friends are oftentimes your worst enemies
While your sworn enemy may one day be your saviour
Appearance is often deceptive
A known enemy is better than a two-faced friend
l am already used to the antics of an enemy
But when a friend becomes enemy
I pray thee Lord my soul to take
Because only a friend knows where to strike the killer blow!
In pursuit of sweetness
I broke down in tears
bargained for an apple
but got an onions
Behind the facade of beauty lies deceit!
Everyone thinks she is enjoying her relationship
only her pillow can say how hurtful she feels!
Beyond Reality comes reality.
Reality begets reality for realities.
The eye sees reality
the coat covers realities.
Realities are reality!
Say it ain’t so when not gold but glitters.
Glittery sparkle but shackles yet worthwhile.
Sweet and sour
Though enticing, though not,
Entombed tears in an offer of joy,
Beyond the eyes’ limit are realities.
Seem obvious but harmless.
Seem negative but positive.
Truth Untold, truth uncovered but discovered.
The truth that brings pains and tears
but heals, spice up and nourishes the soul
Oh, truth, I need not drug, you’re a healer.
Nourish me with you spice
Oh, sweet and sour food of the soul.
Your realities are worthwhile reality!
Deceptive Love Poems
Covers the real me
Full of pain and mystery
I’m dying inside
I’m crying inside
My little secret
Do help me keep it
I will keep my fake smile
From Zambezi to the Nile
Even till the Sahara
I will still do shakara
This is the real me
Please don’t be mean.
Appearing before me like an apple
Green and juicy
Succulent and eye-catching
Then in the quest to satisfy this appetite
took a bite
I got this disheartening taste of an onion
Soured and irritating
as tears rolled down my eyes
What a dismay
I was attracted to your wonderful outlook
Your green colour made my taste
for you so passionate
Your lovelike shape brought this soft smiles on my face
Your smooth nature got my hopes high
and l felt like you dwelling right inside of me
And I drew closer with this hope
Only for me to discover
that all l imagined was only but Fantasies
I was only exaggerating
oh, how I cried!
He came to me looking all sweet and charming
He came with all his charm and enticement
In him, I feel I have found forever
The beginning was sweet and tasty
but the end was peppery and brought so much tears to my eyes
What I thought would bring sweetness to my life
actually caused me so much pain
Indeed not all that glitters is a gem
Indeed the green grass at the others side of the fence
is not always so green when we look closely.
I know a beautiful maiden
Her eyes glitter like the rays of a morning star
Her smile can make one’s day lovely
She got such an amazing outward beauty
The birds sing aloud of her beauty
cos her skin shines brighter like the golden sea
Her outward beauty is so marvellous,
that one could take the same for her inner beauty
Alas, my guess is wrong
Such pretty could possess such poison within her,
Her look can’t justify her heart,
So pretty outside, but bitter inside
My own eyes failed me,
and she caused me the greatest pain
I was deceived by an apple of discord
Sweet on the outside, bitter inside
All that glitters is not gold!
What a bitterly sweet life!
That has humanity struggling in.
What a pleasantly sour life
Where the best get the worst.
Life is sweet
But the in-roads are tough
Behold the ambivalence of human life
The harmless white saliva on the mouth
Many lizards pretentiously go about
their daily routine
But the one unhappy with his kind cannot be seen physical.
Man afflicts man
Man pays good with evil
What a tempting fruit
A death knell,
it can suit beautifully on the outside
But killing on the inside
Do not envy me
Not for my beautiful look,
My influence, my wealth, my ever-smiling face…
Do not envy me
When you see me glow
Like stars in the dark sky,
When I appear in all shades of sweetness;
No! Do not envy me
For those bright looks
Are just but casings housing a damaged soul
Do not wish to be me;
just like an apple in your eyes
…Is a sad piece of rotten sorrows
With slices of onions that rain tears at night
With pains that life gives;
Do not wish to be like me
For my smiles are but like fancy
deco and beautiful arts
Covering my tears and pains
For you may never stand a bite of my inner being!
‘Eat, my darling
Our eyes have been locked
The master mustn’t know
What could be behind our eyes?
Eat, don’t bother
A bite and we are free!’
The crunch was munched
The key was unlocked
The eyes flooded with tears
Now it drowns the world
The tears can’t be stopped
Bitter from glitter
It’s been forever already
But the tears, they never stop
What a bite
A crazy old bite.
Beauty to behold
I longed for the taste
Day and night I dreamed
The day would surely come
Like the twinkle of an eye
My dream came through
Down the aisle, we walked
With yet more dreams
Alas! My dream was cut short
It had been wrapped in great cloaks
It was shattered
All we longed for were thorns
Piercing to the heart
Shocking to the eyes
All that glitters isn’t gold
You would need to wear the shoe
to see if it fits!
As sweet and beautiful like it seems,
yet it comes with so much pain.
a feeling I can’t comprehend.
How can something so sweet tear me up
Oh this heart of mine
wish I could control it.
Life is beautiful
Life is tough
Depending on the route you take,
You can smile
You can also cry
Just as it takes the steel to pass through fire
to make it beautiful
It takes human so many endeavours through pain
to make life meaningful
Life is beautiful,
Life is tough
She was indeed a charm to behold,
Her smile revealed teeth made of gold.
Her figure was of a perfect mould.
Such an angel with a beauty untold.
With every stare…
I lost my mind
I fell in love
she must be mine
whatsoever the cost
Time so fast, we’re now three years.
The sweetness is gone and sour it’s been.
A bitter attitude that brings me tears.
Enchanting looks, but toxic within.
All that glitters is really no gem!
A fool I was, and it’s such a shame.
Much deception, I really have seen.
Indeed, true beauty starts from within!
We step out every day
So much packaging
So much beauty on the outside
We step out every day
With so much strength
With so much zeal
We step out every day
Yet we are all managing
With a heart of steel
Until we are bitten
Until we are squeezed
we may never know.
What’s on the inside is different.
Outside is strength
Outside is beautiful
On the inside…
Is hurt and pains.
Heal from the inside!
Life brought you my way,
So sweet and innocent you look,
fell completely for your charms,
we said our vows,
Everyone admires us as the best couple,
Oh, how I hate the night,
The night came with its brutalities,
The swollen and blood clothed eyes,
the bruises and dislocated bones,
The emotional tortures,
Oh Sometimes I lay in bed crying
wish we didn’t have to meet.
Every brand new day the pretence continues,
The perfect couple we are!
I saw her with so much ecstasy.
The beauty of her skin…
So fresh and smooth
So full of life and youth
What goodness lies beyond!
I believed her beauty radiates from within.
I couldn’t wait.
I was wrong.
The beauty tasted like a beast.
The white was black, red, blue…
She was the apple and tears of my eyes
Yay! she was a wolf in a sheep’s clothing.
Had I known!
I should have known!!
Never judge from the outward,
All glitterings are not gold!
Deceptive Love Messages
I walked down
in search of who to compliment my heart
Then I realised
I deserve nothing short of sweetness to garnish my path.
I was lonely and alone,
Alone in the world
where nothing but a beautiful facade enthrone!
We paint our faces with happiness,
But deep within our hearts
we are just close to tears and sadness.
We’ve suited our pains with the jacket we worn,
NO one will see our strife when it comes on.
Who they see is not who we truly are,
We seem so near, yet so far.
We’ve buried our hatchet in the sand of time
We raise a glass filled up with our tears
but the world only sees a glass of wine.
Many of us are far from a happy life,
We are now so comfortable with our life of lies
Please don’t blame me,
It’s what you want to see
If only you had stopped by to encourage and cheer me up,
Maybe I wouldn’t have craved to be the cream of the crop.
If only you had accepted who I am and respected my opinion,
Maybe you would have seen how much I want to be
because I’m a spice on my own
l am my own sweet!
It’s only me that understand the cries that I share
the pain that I feel
and the words I have left unsaid.
I have covered my pain with smiles
just to keep going
I struggled for happiness, I am in search of one
But I can’t let bitter win me
so l always coat my outer self with happiness
only if one will look deep inside
It will understand that my pain makes me cry always
Where will I go?
whom will I show how I feel
I need love to heal the inner me
because am tired of covering my pain with smiles
it hurt more than the blue memories.
You can never understand who l am inside,
You may think you know me well
but trust me you don’t,
What I am capable of is deeper than you can ever imagine.
In the beginning,
Love was a beautiful thing
That made my heart sing
The Apple of my eyes I cling
Few years down the line
Things had stopped being fine
l asked me if u were ever mine
The drift between us I couldn’t bear
And that was my biggest fears
At last, it ended in premium tears!
Woe unto you Betrayer
why betray the trust I have for you…
You were like a sweet fruit
planted by the riverside
Sweet as an Apple
With those green flowers which sprang forth
like a crown on your head…
Those seed in you
tasted like mustard seeds
just as sweet as you are.
You betrayed my trust!
You showed me the bitter side of you.
I trusted your sweetness
Until I had a bite of you
And tasted the bitterness in your fruit!
Cried like a baby bitten by a soldier ant!
Tears kept rolling down my cheeks
My eyes hurt
My nose bleeds
Just because a sweet and
succulent apple betrayed me.
Forgetting I’m the apple of God’s eyes
Woe unto you!
So sweet and charming
Tender to touch and appealing in the eyes
Wishing I could own forever
Took a bite and tears never cease to flow
You never were what you said you are
sweet things could also be tough
it might make you tear up at some point…
Do not think life is always sweet!
When you are faced with trials,
feel free to cry…
Don’t be down for too long.
Pick up your pieces and strive harder!
Façade of life
Beneath it lies the true colour
From the outside, it’s all Rosey
But a taste of it shows that roses have thorns
Like an apple that gladdens and soothes the heart
It brought nothing but tears and pain
All that glitters is not gold
Don’t just fall for the outside
Find what is inside
only then can you decide
The façade of life
When I cry and complain
no one cares
When I weep and asked questions
When I call on the ones I thought would answer…
they all Left
They ignored n mocked me
when I needed them the most!
How I thought you came to wipe my tears and give me comfort
but it turned out you were the one behind the tears
You’re definitely a Sweet Pain
…a Wolf in Sheep Clothing!
I’m never alone
I may be alone but I’m not alone
There’s a voice that l always talk to
It knows almost everything about me
And it’s not a yoke around my neck
Just like a chip inside me feel every vibe it gives
From dawn to dawn I rise and grow within it.
We may argue a lot but I’m in love with it
When the chips are down
It is there to amenities me,
It is indeed a true friend.
You will never see him
You will never hear his voice
If you kill me; he also dies.
Feeling all the pain within me
But remind me he is within me
Just like a spirit in me that always echo every word I split
He is the one that summons my heart and mind before any decision
He always gives a force to be reckoned with
His voice is the loudest
His word is final.
Thought you were an Apple
You appeared really fresh and fine
So innocent and attractive
…I decided to take a bite.
Just one bite and the real you came out.
What I thought would have made me happy
Ended up becoming what made me shed tears.
You were only an Onion with an Apple shell.
Sweet! yet brings tears!!!
A death knell, it can suit
Beautiful on the outside
But killing on the inside
You pretend to love my successes
Unknown to me you are slicing the jealousy’s onion
You celebrate me with the Apple
Whereas, you want me to sign my death warrant.
To you, I extend the hand of fellowship
Thinking we can foster this brotherhood
But you see my feats as showmanship
And cut the cord of our motherhood…
I will be ready to pay the price
Be real and unpretentious
I will make life unto you so vivacious.
Let love lead
Hurts are inevitable
Let apple be the seed
So that the Apple-onion can be palatable
By then life will be worth living.
Human Life is ambivalent
but the choice is ours to make.
