honest lies

honest lies

1
i believe
that you believe you
the words you whisper
in my ears
calling me sweetheart
telling me of fancy places
that you long to take me to
of the many ways you will prove
you undying love and admiration
but
only if i can wait
long enough for you to
“take care of things”
tie up pesky lose ends
because
you’re not as free
as you claim to be
your heart has a sign that says
OCCUPIED

2

time after time
wasting time
is that the time?
pretending to be uninterested
unimpressed
by your hemorrhage of wealth
even as i peek over the fence
and try to determine
if your grass is really green
or if it’s sprinkled with gold dust
and tended by fairies
hoping that underneath it all
there are several bodies buried
because
no one can really be
that happy
right?

yes
i admit it
i’m guilty
it’s true
you lie to me
and i lie to you
we invent back stories
for the characters we play
on the
(heavily guarded with fire-breathing critics)
stage called life
with control top panty hose
and colored contacts
slimming tanks
waxed dyed and shaved
painted on faces
sewed in pieces of hair
with jail style pants
(exposing superman drawers)
swap meet jewelry
laden with CZs
fake accents
country grammer
lost innocence
claiming criminal records
because
that’s the in thing to do

when the sun
rises
thank
whatever gods you choose
another hour
has been granted
for you
to seek
the
truth
