A poem I wrote some time ago. It's about my friend lying through her teeth and well... I just couldn't help but wonder how she could look me in the eyes and lie.

Hope you like it! :)

Fake smiles,
Fake hugs,
All sugar coated lies,

I can't hurt you,
But, how can I go through?

You look me in the eyes,
Tell me you ARE telling the truth,
But, how can I still tell it's all lies?

You're so hypocritical,
Always finding my flaws,
Telling me my dreams are all a lie,
Putting me down,
Cutting me down,
When all I want is to fly.

How can I call you a friend?
How can I go on?
How can I?
When everything feels so wrong?

Lies covered on lies,
You tell me you're just helping me,
But, how can I touch the sky,
If you won't let me be?

I'm torn.
Like a broken, bleeding heart,
Still alive, still beating,
But missing that one important part.

I can't take much more.

Not with my heart so broken,

Broken beyond repair.

Not when my mind is so sore.

So please,
I'm begging you,
Can you leave me?
Just let me be?
I don't want you here,
Holding me down,
Not letting me fly,
Fly out of this,
This frozen land...
Let me fly into the sky...
Where I can breathe...
And where I know,

It

Isn't

All

A

Lie.
