Lies - Poem by Kavya Leo Vakkayil

There lies the lies
Crystal clear on the skies
I looked them one last time
Gasped, turned and walked away.

I wished I never know the truth
For it hurts me deep inside
I looked the palace which I made
With paper cards shatter again.

I cried inside again
My head turned round again
My steps were heavy again
Still I took the breath again.

It was hard to walk away
But it was harder for me to stay
Inside those colored rooms
Painted with the brightest lies

No tooth fairies hear your prayers
Once you lose the belief
No magic ever wonders you again
Once you know all those tricks.

I wish they were real
The unicorns and Santa
Like butterflies and stars
And lived beside me forever.

I wish: they were the truths
Every while I looked the walls
But Alas now I know
I was an Alice in this Wonderland.
