lies in her eyes

August 27, 2008
By salimah turner, Pittsburgh, PA

Starved for attention,
she took a dive,
and the lies slowly started to slide,
from her tongue,
to their ears,
as they waited anxious to hear,
but her tears,
poured down from the outside in,
scared to face her fears,
scared to see what was there,
but the truth was there was nothing there,
it was all so clear,
under all those lies she shone bear,
forgetting herself,
as she involved into her lies,
the person she was, was barely alive
