Lies

Lies

It’s been said and done.
It’s been said and done.
What is said cannot be taken back.
False hopes can’t always fill deep cracks.

Thresholds are met and broken.
Words you’ll regret are spoken.
Some sorrows get embedded in your skin.
In a battle against yourself, you can never truly win.
What is said cannot be taken back.
False hopes can’t always fill deep cracks.

So blatantly and bluntly you lie,
Yet I act oblivious and take it with a smile.
But these untrue oblivious smiles are hurting my skin,
In this battle against myself, I can never truly win.

Names I knew have lost trust in me,
Because I stay silent about my fears.
Pains of present and past I keep hidden,
Hoping to breed a happy future in tears.

The guilt of accepting your sugar-coated lies,
Is the source of my silent nature ; why my own truths I hide.
Unless I was expressly told otherwise,
In you I’d whole-heartedly believe.
But the awareness of truth is now a burden on my heart that trusts you,
In reflections I’ve realized while I watch this fake-filter in between,
Trust can’t tremble with silence if it’s real indeed.

  1. Nice piece… i like the intricately woven lines used to identify the conflicting nature of life, self and relationships. Such as False hopes can’t always fill deep cracks. And Pains of present and past I keep hidden,
    Hoping to breed a happy future in tears. Really nice.

    This is a piece that’s so genuine and profound! Every word resonates!! It’s vulnerable yet somehow fierce… I really don’t know if I’m able to capture my feelings in these words but gee M, this is so gorgeous!❤
