I want to tell you the truth so bad.
But I know you’ll get mad.
You are the one I want.
But there’s a chance we’ll get caught.
I don’t know how long I can keep up this lie just for one guy.
You don’t know how much it wears me out.
It makes me want to go off and pout.
The lies are taking over.
So I’m running for cover.
I’m sorry that I won’t stay and fight.
I just can’t handle another bite.
Because everywhere I go there’s another lie.
And that scares me because they’re becoming easy as pie.
I have to watch everything I say.
Because I don’t know what’s going to happen throughout the day.
There has been times I thought about running.
But that would just keep the fire of lies burning.
So I set here missing opportunities.
Because I avoid my manly duties.

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
