How do I feel?
Well, since you said
Not to lie...

I'd say happy,
But my heart's torn.
No lies, remember?

I'd say fine,
But my mind says
'Lie! Everything's not fine.'

I'd say depressed,
But that was before;
It's now a lie.

I'd say betrayed,
But I never truly trusted.
It's half of a lie.

I'd say ticked off,
But I don't get that angry anymore.
Or is the above a lie?

So I feel... Well, I don't feel okay.
But I will.
And that's not a lie.
