Always, perfect, us, and forever
A part of me stands back wondering why
I want to believe but cannot almost ever
He tells these formidable obvious lies
Like my sister you build a story
You are the star and say you never lie
I blink in wonder at your false silly glory
You build a castle of lies while I wonder why
I’d like to believe we’ll always be friends
A part of me wants security, foolish hope
I give it 50/50, unsurprised when it ends
I think you should wash your mouth out with soap
The best liars adore and believe their own words
And it takes years for the real truth to be heard


For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: words.

  1. P.S. There have been so many liars in my life — mom on down. Sometimes I wonder if they even know they’re lying.

  2. Here you go. I watched this a LOT after ejecting the Evil X. :-)

    Those last two lines are so good. It’s crazy how people become liars even to themselves.
