You wake up in the morning,
next to that familiar stranger,
the one you never married,
but hooked up with, a year later!
-Only to find your life sucked all out of you!
your family broken; that’s what lies do!!
You have a friend; the one you trust,
even with those deep dark skeletons-in-your-closet,
The very one who trusts you back.
Whose photo you put in your necklace-locket,
-Only to later have them believe the untrue,
They believe the gossip: and place the blame on you!
A friendship ended! That’s what lies do!!
Too many things you have to keep hidden,
they eat up your heart; give you sharp migraines,
Like having to claim that your pap is 6feet under,
when you know, only too well, that he’s with paramour again!
-Slowly killing, and painfully numbing you,
making you ice-cold; that’s what lies do!!
Lies; like gluttons; are greedy and ever-hungry,
they grab, gobble, hog and take!
Lies; like death; are selfish and insatiable,
they steal, destroy, damage and break!
They’re loyal only to the untrue,
That’s just what lies do!!
I miss the family they broke,
I miss the dad they took,
I miss the heart they swallowed whole,
I miss the friend they stole!!
