Lies if the deceitful survivor.
I lie everyday,
To a world that doesn’t care for the truth,
To the people that have no time to look up and care,
I lie so I may survive.
I cover myself in a sheer rainbow web of protection,
My lies get through,
I no longer go
Where lays only pain
And deceit, shame and maybe even blame.
But I no longer look to myself for the reasons,
Of your descent,
I no longer cry tears,
For you to see,
I save them for the longest nights, when darkness covers me,
eyes closed my failures,
Spreads through me in an abundance of pain that forces
The tears to fall.
I tell no one.
I let them come,
I don’t run,
I sit alone and let the pain consume me,
If only for a second.
I lie, so as that, I might survive, in a world
That does not see me.
