Gossip

Lies

Slander

Laughter

 

All fun and games

Until...

I have no idea what the truth is

Anymore

 

One friend tells a story

Interesting

Intriguing

Makes someone else seem like

A terrible person

 

But the truth?

I'm not sure

I have no idea

Do I actually want the truth?

 

Or am I just fishing

to satisfy curiosity?

Do I really want to know how 

often my friends really lie?

 

Or should I stay part of a fantasy

believing the little white lies

they throw at me?

 

He's crazy.

She's a hoe.

He's a drama queen.

He's immature.

 

But they're all conflicting

stories that don't make sense

Which one is true

Which one is lies

 

I believe

they're all slightly true

That a piece of each story

adds to the entire picture

 

They're all a little crazy

Immature

Drama Queens

 

But the one truth

I know this much

They're all liars

 

And I can't trust any of them

Because no one wants to tell

the TRUTH

 

Yeah, so maybe he's a bad date

She's had a few boyfriends

And he throws a fit every time 

someone doesn't do something his way

 

But all the other stuff?

Is it really true?

Or is it embellishments

to make your story sound...

fantastical?

 

If you were a better storyteller,

you wouldn't need to add gimmicks

You could tell me straightout

the truth...

 

But what you think is lame

you add pieces that never happened

to make...

 

Actually, I have no fucking idea

why you would ever add pieces to the story

Why would you lie?

Why would you lie to me?

 

I thought we were friends...

I would rather you keep the story from me 

altogether

than tell me cooked up lies

 

It doesn't make me see you in a better light

Because when I find out...

it makes me think that

you believe your lies are worth more

than our friendship

 

Is it?

Was it?
