in , ,



Behind a mask

You brood

A false smile

You struggle to recollect

The bunch of lies you told

Convincingly each word conveyed

Though far from

The border of reality

Make up stories

As you rearrange details

Finer points added

As you fib again

They believe what you say

A life of fantasy to stay

You love your reflection

But don’t recognize what you see

Truth always

Brings you down on knees

Is it easy to live a life not true

Take a bow

You have said all that you wanted

Time for the curtains to close

They all depart

The arc lights shut

It is now

Just you and gloom.


What do you think?
