Compulsive Liar - Poem by Lucy Lll

Everything that comes out your mouth is hot and black like treacle,
Never once have you said anything other than anything deceitful.
You're poisonous and toxic, dangerous and deceptive,
Consuming all around you and so relentlessly receptive.
Swallowing each indiscretion and choking on your fumes,
While all around you are but pawns for your own use.
Stained with the vague idea that you are a 'person'
In reality I watch as your psychoses gradually worsen.
The only thing I know for sure; your gender and your name,
Behind closed doors and cold surfaces I watch you shift the blame.
The feelings that you say you feel are all just a charade,
Never once have you been genuine, never let down your guard.
But I'm the one whose laughing now, I'm the one that's real,
I have the ability to love and to care, the ability to feel.
You'll never be more than a shadow, a watery reflection in the mirror,
And by default I am everything you're not; I'll always be the winner.
