Poem: Lies

Words and actions - unmatched.
The truth is shrouded in mystery.
So far back in history,
That I begin to doubt myself. 

The effort applied to closing my ears and eyes,
While you reveal a lie, concealing what should,
Be known. 

Why spend more time, more energy,
Entangling yourself in a web of secrecy?
For it's no secret to me - you're no good. 

Yet still I give you all that I have. 
Love rose-tints even the harshest of words. 
It blinds you from the obvious, 
Deluding the mind, so that the songs of birds,
Play out in the silence. 

The thoughts in my head become mindless. 
For you don't value my words, you don't value my worth. 
You say I stress you out, 
I cause 'problems' when I make my voice heard. 

You want a mouth of mine that's kissable 24/7,
Yet says only want you want to hear. 
Even but a word out of place and I'm 'childish',
Or 'weird'. 
A mind silenced out of personal fear.

While you are free to spit lies every day and every night, 
Speak your mind as your heart ceases to beat.
Meanwhile the facade of my smile fades,
As I bare your heartless lies through gritted teeth. 

*Being lied to by anyone isn't nice, but there's something to be said about when it's done by someone you love, or atleast someone you thought you loved. A serious lie from them stings the most I feel.
