I lie
Always
I don’t want to tell you
It’s like I can’t
Even if I tried
I just wouldn’t be able to find the words

You hit me
Fast and hard
Like a train
It was short and painful

You were around
But then you were gone
It’s like a car passing by
It’s there one second
Gone the next

You’re not around anymore
Feels like it’s been forever

Please don’t ask what’s wrong
For I don’t know
And if I did
I’d lie.
