Liar Liar

I am an impressive liar

I lie everyday

to everyone and everything

I can even convince myself of some of my lies


These lies are pretty convincing

and have made me tell much more

I do dangerous things for the thrill

And I have never told another soul


The lies cause my scars

my addiction

and depression

though I never feel guilty telling them


The truth is

No one would even take a look

at the real me

if they knew about

my sexuality




This poem is about: 
My community



So relatable. Thanks for writing this!
