"When there is snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds."


you keep your mouth shut,
but I know
on the tip of you tounge
is the sweet taste of a lie
begging to be let out
into the crisp air.
let it go.
I beg you please.
go ahead and tell me a lie,
convince me that this chaos isn't real.
fool me, I dare you.
come on I'm waiting.
so go forth and lie to me cause it'll be the closest thing to
truth
in this wretched place.

yet another poem written on whim about wanting to escape life through lies (in a sense.)

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend

I agree. Five stars. This is incredible.
