Your Lies

By Stephanie Bermudez-Cruz

Your lies are like animal manure spreading around

Growing more foul each day

Burning me from outside in

Yet my eyes try to deceive me

They want to see something that’s make believe

They want to see you, still.

How insane can I be?

Your lies are like candy being stolen from a baby

Growing sweeter everyday

Feeding me with deliciousness

That I will never taste because you lied

You stole everything from me

My thoughts

My time

My sanity

You took them like a thief

Now, I’ve come back

No longer to be deceived

No longer to be hurt

But to regain what’s mine

Not yours
