The Lies You Weave
by BRITTNEY HETH
You once breathed sunlight into souls,
within seconds it’s become a fiery mess –
the liquid burns brightly around your words
as they lash out like blazing daggers;
impulsive fables fall upon their ears.
How your lies are woven intricately,
these single stitches piece together
the otherwise unknown boundaries you set,
symmetrical walls valley all sincerity –
dances of defeat become a promise.
Wheels being spun all throughout the evening,
what a measurable affect you have
pity seeps through your transparent being,
and when the pieces begin to crumble
is the time my truth will be wished for.
To your surprise, all I will bring you
is the destructive fame you deserve.
