Sweet Little Lies

You have given her sweet little lies
To ease her pain
Sweet little lies
No anger, no blame!

But you couldn’t see you sweet one
It was a painful game
Your sweet little lies
Buried my name!

You wanted your fame
So destructive a game
Oh, so much pain
When you buried my name…

I can’t ease my fear
You did her so wrong
Your sweet little lies
It killed all the strong!

You wanted the best
But only for you
Your world was for one
And not made for two!

You wanted your fame
So destructive a game
Oh, so much pain
When you buried my name…

Your sweet little lies
I can’t have them near
They bring so much pain
They bring so much fear!

You eased her from pain
I don’t think it’s true
Your sweet little lies
They only eased you!

You wanted your fame
So destructive a game
Oh, so much pain
When you buried my name…

(This poem is from an old collection of mine. It was written in 2003 and was the last poem written in my youth (from 1998-2003). Originally the drawing had a title ”Why don’t you want me?”, which reflected the deep feeling of neglect and loneliness I experienced through my youth).
