And maybe

Just maybe, the saddest thing of all

she was lying to herself

lying for the life she craved

lying just to breathe

she lied and she lied

she lied to the voices in her head

and she lied to the feeling in her gut

she lied to the sun and she lied to the moon

and when the  stars swam by, she smiled a broken smile

and she lied to them as well

She lied that this was heaven

when everyday this was hell

she lied to wake up

and she lied to rest her soul

she lied until the lies ran dry

she lied until there was nothing left

nothing but the truth.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
