Of Love and Lies

I’m lost in a valley of lies
Where the fray turns their eyes
Where friends and lovers are spies
Where I wonder as I wander, screaming a tormented, “Why?!”
And there’s no denying times are trying
But I can’t keep buying into it
Because I despise your lies, and at times I cry
As these blunders break my spirit.

The role you take in my trauma
Stems from your subconscious melodrama
Like an eloquent unicorn,
Well-spoken, yet fake,
You delight in the scorn, but it’s you who I mourn
As I wake to the mess that you’ve made.

Many times I’ve begged and pleaded
Knowing I was missing something needed
Fighting past the insecurities you’ve seeded
No matter how I’m treated,
My impurities, few though they be
Are the only other parts of me you see
But I’m not media or paparazzi
I don’t care about your Nazi posse
You and yours can live as you please
I’ve got truth and love and that’s all I need.
