Words are Powerful, Please Handle with Discretion



As long as you're dishonest, you'll be lying in the dark.

don’t. don’t kid yourself
’cause you’re not fooling anyone else
your eyes defy the smile that’s
plastered on your face.

this indiscretion’s sickening
pretend that it’s not happening
can you ever find the truth
amongst lies you’ve sown so thick?

you think you’ve got the whole world tricked
but you’re the one that’s buying in
you think we’re all oblivious
i think you’d better think again.

what’s the point in honesty
when it falls on deaf ears?
for so long i’ve been waiting
but you won’t ever hear.

So, this is the first somewhat post-worthy poem for quite some time. Anth thinks it’s abstract; it’s about how if you lie to yourself enough, your lies become the only truth you know. I don’t know if I like it yet... it’s kind of a rough draft. On the other hand, I like the cheesy title quite a lot.

That seems so relevant to some of the people I have to deal with lately.  Unfortunately I work with a girl who lies a lot.  She’s being beaten by her bf and to cover it up, she lies about how she has bruises and cuts.  she can’t even keep them straight.  She’ll tell one lie to one person, and change a detail or two and tell someone else.  So we’ve all caught her, but she just doesn’t know it yet.  Anyway, I just wanted to say nice poem.
