The Lies We've Told

I'm always smiling.

I am beautiful.

My heart is not broken.

I'm fine.

These are not tears.

I do not miss you,

nor do I need you.


It's the truth.


No, I don't need your help.

yes, my life is wonderful.

He loves me.

I'm his only girl.


I'm not lying.


I love my friends.

They're always nice to me.

I am not being bullied.

I'm not alone.


I hate that I'm telling the truth.


I'm not dying inside.

My back is not pierced with knives.

I do not feel like dying every day.

I’m fine.

I’m okay.


It’s true that these are all lies.
