I lied

by Obscure   Aug 11, 2022

Honesty is vulnerable
To be open to those eyes
So I grasp at my own comfort
As I patch together lies

Pretending isn't safety
Though it feels that way at first
And the pain that I put off
Well it's come to be much worse

So I deal with my transgressions
Feel the shame for what I've done
Wish that I could travel time
And undo every one

I multiplied discomfort
So now others hurt as well
Just because I wasn't strong enough
To speak what I should tell

I'm asking for forgiveness
Though I don't deserve such things
And I'm warning you to tell the truth
You don't want what lies bring
