The laughing lie

Updated on August 10, 2011

The laughing lie


 Your excuse

Is shallow and followed quickly by a chuckle

Your pathetic
And O’ so low.
Do not come to me in all your self induced misery

I do not seek you

Out
Any longer.

Your face Is not seen when my weary eyes are closed and still.
I’m happy and relieved you pulled the trigger

In this wretched relationship's suicide darling

You did it all for me , I was merely your life jacket
In the rushing river of dying fish and toxic waste

That you so willingly dove into
So quickly unfortunately

You had cut your self deep and I was no more

Than your stitches and a band-aid

Sadly

Though I did love you
I was never in love with you

That Is what make’s our play of tragedy

For
Once
Just
Once

A

Comedy.
