I'm Lying

what once used to be so endearing, no longer makes my heart beat unevenly.

you no longer make my tongue heavy with words I can't express, now I am the silver tongue

I have always known myself to be.

And not with kind words, but the harsh truths I could never give you.

but your betrayal was the key,

and the one to suffer the consequences

will only be you.


I don't love you anymore.


I look at you

and see months wasted,

because you imagined someone else loving you,

while I gave you everything


I hope you live the rest of your life knowing you left

one of the best things in your life behind

for an impulse 

led by the heart

in between your thighs.
