Lies - Poem by Jeremy Willson

Why is it that we lie to ourselves?
It hurts to say I love you when they don't love you back
It's really caring that they lack
If someone cares about you then you know they'll never hurt you
We lie to ourselves every day and our minds just swirl them around more and more
till you can't tell if it's the truth or a lie anymore
Their sorry doesn't call upon the sun to roll away the dark clouds that haunt us
"A broken heart bleeds tears"
I have wants, aspirations, fears
And dreams that seem to whisk away the darkness
But dreams are just dreams reality is true
And in reality there is nothing we can do
It's time we accept the truth and let the lies fade by
Time to pull back the veil and let the trapped bird fly
My soul can barely take the pain
But like a forest fire once it starts to rain
The dust and the anguish brings forth new life
Reborn from the twain of love and strife
