“I'm not angry.” Is what I say, but my lips tell me I’m saying “I’m lying.”

“Don’t worry about it.” I say, calm as ever. I put on a smile even though my throat and eyes tell me I’m crying.

“I don’t want to talk about it.” I say, looking away and going quiet, but my head tells me to speak.

“It’s okay.” I say, showing with my eyes honesty, but my mouth knows its not.

“I understand.” I say, feeling pain for them, but my head tells me I don’t.

“Tell me.” I say, squeezing a hand to show trust, but my heart tells me I don’t deserve to know.

“I trust you.” I say, thinking I do but my lips tell me I’m saying “leave.”

“I am telling the truth.” I say but with my soul I know it’s a lie.

“I love you.” I say, speaking with emotion, but I know I don’t.

I think it is difficult to go through life without saying these things. I say them because I want to protect myself or someone else, but sometimes you are expected to say that you are fine even when you aren't. This piece really brings that to life. All those moments when you have to make a choice. Very thought provoking.

I think everyone does the same thing.  We all those little "white lies" that haunt us in the end.
