Show You A Lie

 

I’ll show you a lie,

put away all the black,

make out things are simple

I’m not under attack.

I’ll paint on a smile,

remove traces of tears,

keeping things happy

and bouncing off fears.

Look at that smile;

no trace there of pain,

I’ll prove it to you

again and again.

I might wear white

but my head is in black,

you’ll not know a thing

for my words I will track.

Keep up pretending

everything’s fine

while downing another

bottle of wine.

Not black nor white

but a deep blood red

that curdles my stomach

and swims in my head.

But truth, it’s not wanted

I’ll give you a lie

And when I am falling

you’ll never know why.
