‘I’m scared,’ she tells me
I crouch down and almost immediately,
My gaze softens
I want to tell her everything will be alright, I wish to declare to her that she is just tired
But deep in my mind, deep in my knowledge, I know it is but another lie                                                                           This is where I may agree
This is where my eyes let me see
Where I can be
But no, I can’t deceive her
Not again
My precision becomes confusion
The air in my thoughts no longer has a kite
And instead of feeling right, I seem to feel fright
My blood runs cold
My hands are now nothing for me to hold
I cannot find a single site for light
All of me is in a fight
And to think,
That I would never sink
Under the veracity
The lies
They never ached and were so wise
One after one,
They grow to be a compromise
You grant me publicity
I give you possibility
You sacrifice your honesty
I bear with you my novelty
My mind tells me to continue with the deceit
My heart advises me to end this and nevermore retreat
I dare you to try
I bet you will never try
All of these voices inside my head..
All of these spare hands..
Who am I to corrupt some land?
‘I’m scared’ she tells me
I gaze deep into her eyes
‘I know, so am I’
‘How do you do it?’ she asks
‘I just say goodbye’
