Less Than What We Are

I'm a liar.
I say I'm not hungry
But my stomach growls.
I say I'm happy
But there are tears behind my smiles.
Was I lying when I said I loved you?

I'm a cheater.
I eat less to be perfect.
It makes me feel stronger.
I pretend life isn't hectic.
It makes me feel better.
Do you still think I was yours?

I'm selfish.
I pity over myself
While others are dying.
I auto-destroy myself
And mother is crying
Who's to say I cared?

I loved you. I was yours. I do care.
I'm a liar. I'm a cheater. I'm a selfish. But I- I was true. You are a fake.
