Marshmallow

August 7, 2008
By Diana Heriford, Suffolk, VA

I lie
Everyday

The truth gets stuck
Like marshmallows on braces
Sticky icky stuck

I lied
Yesterday

The lies flow
So much smoother…like cool water
gently pouring from a fountain

I will lie
Today

To escape from pain like mine
And angry glances like theirs
