Unfortunate Coincidence

Marc Chagall. Lovers in the Lilacs. 1930.


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.

-- Dorothy Parker --

Reminds me of the Abba song Claudia, 'One of Us'
Chagall and the poem

One of us is crying
One of us is lying
In her lonely bed
Staring at the ceiling
Wishing she was somewhere else instead
One of us is lonely
One of us is only
Waiting for a call
Sorry for herself, feeling stupid feeling small
Wishing she had never left at all
Never left at all

I love that song.
