Lies Hurt Us All

July 11, 2008
By Ashley Murray, Schwenksville, PA

Looking at myself in the mirror
seeing this label you gave me
knowing it wont go away, and
knowing i'll never forget

The lie you told me
still runs through my head
everytime i think of that little mistake i made

Holding on to my pillow
tears rushing down my face
i scream in my dreams

Seeing you with her
this simple girl
i watch you lie
and deseive her

Does she know?
your secret
does anyone else know

I try to warn her
but she no longer can hear me
only time will have to tell
