The Art of Lying

July 11, 2010
Lying tastes like salt.
So heavy on my tongue.
The tears continue to fall.

The smell of soap.
Because lying is such a dirty thing.
Tainted truth and forgotten reality.

The look on your face
When I tell you I’m ok.
The reason I keep lying.

These people pass me by.
I put them all on mute.
Their sounds don’t breach my thoughts.

No feelings at all.
Because to allow feeling,
Would mean the end of my control.

Aw thanks so much =)

I have a lot of other stuff too. This is DEFINETLY not my favorite of my work.

Beautiful Wallflower, Army Soldier Michael Poff, KevKev, Caged Butterfly, and I Am The Anonymous are probably my top few.
