Probably my favourite poem. Again written a few years ago. This was one where my girlfriend at the time continued to lie to me, which is pretty obvious. Again a pretty dark and depressive poem, which is the period in which most of my poems were written. I made a few edits from the previous entry on poetry.com

Take my soul, torture my mind.
I have given my heart to you but felt only lies.
You broke it with a false truth hidden deep within.
You tore me away with a lie from your lips.

Truths that give you inner peace.
Believing that you've escaped the moment.
Truths that make you feel complete.
Truths that slowly divide.

Lies, I can see them in your eyes.
Knowing that I can't believe you.
Your lies, where do they begin and end?
Your lies that make me hollow and thin.

To this day, you still lie.
And with the pain I feel, I slowly die.
For good, never to see you.
Never to know your lies, no more.
