A lie is sometimes true

A lie is sometimes true when someone listens
To hear the things that one needs to be said

A single word that could alter the meaning
Is added or subtracted in one’s head

“I love you” seems so true when it is spoken
Yet in the air it sometimes changes shape

Upon its changing shape its truth is broken
Once broken, truth makes loving feel like rape

A lie is sometimes the moment given
But circumstance and time may change a fact

And once a fact is changed the change is written
And what was once your life is now an act

Can dead be really dead if one has risen
Can rising make the death become a lie

Is something never taken never given?
And is the truth erased by a ‘good-bye’?

A lie is sometimes true when someone listens,
To hear the words that will erase the pain

Your Wall

I cannot pierce the wall you’ve built

You won’t hear what I say

I’m trying hard to reach for you

But you just slip away

It’s only love that makes me say

The things you will not hear

You say you want me close to you

But won’t let me get near

You’ve been fighting for so long

Do you remember why?

You say you want to give me joy

But still you make me cry

How long can I try to give

To someone I can’t see ?

Don’t you know you can’t be happy

Till you want to be?

I LEAVE

We make love to each other

for each other, with each other,

we expand

we contract

we explode

I leave

and feel

the pain of leaving

and the pain

of your

being left

I would not leave

If I did not fear

losing you

and did not fear

having you

but i am too selfish

to let you go

so i will stay

until staying is

easier than leaving

and love

is stronger

than fear
