Save it. Pack that one away.

Save it for your family.

They believe your dumb lies anyway.

Do you think that I’m that stupid?

You could have at least tried.

 Tried To come up with a better one

A better stupid lie…

Are you really ok?

Do you think you’re that smart?

Do you really know what you’re doing?

Do you think you are…?



To the washed up life you live

Flesh is not bullet proof.

And words cut like daggers. 

And what people say about you

Molds how you feel about you.

So go home

Look in the mirror

And rehearse more of your silly little lies 

 Tell yourself that you have this under control.

And what you’re doing is more than right

As your world spins out

Flips around.

As everything that you know…


 So go lie to yourself

And everyone else.

Because I don’t have time for people

Who refuse to be honest with themselves.

Sarah, tell us how you really feel? Kidding, don't mean to make jokes if you're having a tough time with something. This sounds very honest.

I admire the ability to do what you do here: to pick up a pen and vent off feelings. I love to write, but not currently in that fashion. Peace.

Hey Doug, Thanks for stopping by, and no worries I’m not especially sensitive so always feel free to write what you feel :) Thanks for that compliment, sometimes writing what you feel can difficult because you read it back to yourself and think “wow should I post this?” I have also been practicing a different style, but I never feel for those pieces what I feel for these… Maybe one day I will feel up to posting some of my other things. Take care!
