Lies: They eat you up inside.

Apprehensive of the plot i’ve conceived,

the seeds i’ve sown,

the lies I’ve weaved.

I swallowed the guilt like a heavy tonic,

I pencilled over the stencil of truth,

a white lie won’t hurt you,

I say as butterflies line my stomach.

I fear the way my eyes betray me,

the tremors in my fingers,

as I open my mouth and let tumble forth,

the distorted reality that I wish you to believe.
