He was lied to/
His intelligence was preyed upon/
He saw her differently, He saw one side of HER, the world saw two/
He was thrown in the middle of the two parties/
HER entire web of lies wrapped around him, He was withheld in HER cocoon/
SHE was smart but He was clever/ He played dumb even when the truth was clear/
He played a fool to watch the theatre act unveil on stage/
SHE thought He cared but SHE was wrong/
He was Curious!

What’s with girls and lies?
What’s with females and falsifications?
What’s with the feminine side and prevarications?
Must be the inferiority complex within them
Or the idea of trying to rise above the shadow of the superiors (men)
Your lies won’t get you anywhere
Your false words won’t gain you anything
Except more curiosity from a curious individual…

– Hemarhnuel/Zaheer (Bisi-Ayeni Emmanuel Olalekan)
