Convincing, More Like Lying - Poem by Kyle Jones

Guess I'll take a seat and persuade myself it's true.
That you’re trying to persuade yourself we're through.
My friends and soul try to tell me you're gone.
But I won't listen to myself or anyone..

Well I'll stay here to convince myself it's true.
That you keep on pretending to have no clue.
That I'd kill for you and cook the flesh.
Give you the heart and scrap the rest.

I've got nothing left but loneliness
Holes in doors and fractured wrists.
My head is pounding like a heartbeat
Similar to the one I lost

Ten thousand miles is nothing to walk if I'm walking home to

You got my heart off you went.
And you're never coming back again
Still trying to persuade myself it's true.
Convincing myself I'll be okay without you

And I know I will be, okay without you

    this is a story of many people and you told us about it
    we fully understand
    we fully see the scene
    oh yes we lie a lot to convince
    and we hurt so much when a love one leaves with our heart
    what more can i say
    this is one good poem where we see all the images you put
    one heartfelt poem everyone relates too
    you wrote it so good

    This is beautiful! I love the imagery! It's a sad thing, all the lies we tell ourselves, but it usually is to help. It's not that different from hope because what does hope do other than comfort us. (Report)Reply
