Truth be Told

Faking is horrid
Faking is damaging
It hurts me
It hurts all of those around me

I feel bad
I feel terrible
I know it’s wrong
I know it’s…

I can’t even say it

I try to stop
But it’s like a drug
Once you try it once
You can’t stop

One lie leads
To another
Eventually i lie
To my self
About whom i am
And who i want to be
And eventually
The lies become so
Powerful that i
Forgot who I was
I lost myself
I am no longer myself
There is no me anymore
After the lies take over

They take over everything
Friends
Family
My personality
My life

It completely consumes
Me
There is no human
No soul
No heart
Left in me

I am now nothing
