Tragic Lies


She tells me everything's fine,
so i go about my day,
but with this burning feeling,
something must be wrong.

I see her again in the hall,
later that day,
and on her beautiful face,
she wears this distressed look.

I can't help but ask again,
and again i get the same answer,
everything is fine,
but she can't convince me with her eyes.

I go home after school,
going about my day normally,
doing homework,
and cooking dinner for my younger brother.

12 am, I am in a dead sleep,
about to be disturbed,
by the over and over again ringing,
feeling like a dream at first.

I answer and hear the words,
and a stab of pain in my stomach,
I want to puke,
as the realization hits,
Everything was wrong...

Who once was lost will never be again...

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
