"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


Once upon a time I knew every line of

"Love The Way You Lie"

But there was no reference point

Now I may not remember all the words

But I know the truth of every line is

Indicated by the ridge in my spine when you

Pass by

My heart is twisted and slouched, unable to depend

Lean on the verity of your words

Nothing I can vouch for, not even sure I can mend

From the arrows you have shot me down with

Arrows embedded within me

Arrows I did not know how to deflect, and am now

Stuck with

As the lies you tell mingle with truths

And I cannot tell the night from day

When you say you're leaving, does that mean you'll stay?

Did I think that loving you would make it all okay?

But loving you and you not loving me

Not loving me enough to stop

Hurting me

Is not enough to take this awful pain away

When you erase the name written next to yours

And pretend mine was there all along

You lie like I'm blind and I can't see that

It's my friend you're hitting on

And I hate that

I hate the way you lie

But I can't stop loving you
