Its a poem i wrote a couple months ago when my life seems so perfect, but yet so wrong at the exact same time.

The truth is all I want but lie if you need
A beautiful lie that says i'm all you ever see.
if left here alone who knows what i may do?
just the torture of my present thoughts
are enough to make me scream.

Its such a perfect night for this beautiful lie.
The truth is all i want but lie if you must.
Because the truth hurts more often than not
and i'm tired of being hurt whenever i turn.
So i'm asking you to lie this beautiful lie.

Imperfection is the new perfect.
Or so it seems to me.
lets murder these memories
so that they can never again haunt me in my dreams.

What would you do if i told you that i couldnt take this anymore?
Would you lie this beautiful lie? or tell this beautiful truth?
Listen to my begging screams of yesterday and respond to them tomorrow.
Just a little too late, just a little too late.
but its never too late for me.

Lie this beautiful lie. Tell this beautiful truth.
To this imperfect girl.
