Personification of a Lie

I walk this land all on my own,

The people I've met are never known,

Their faces are a false white,

Imitating purity's light.

 

In this world I have myself;

I have heartbreaks on my trophy shelf,

There is not much room left at all,

For the moments where I fall.

 

These moments are a dime a dozen,

Leaving all my muscles frozen,

I can't believe I didn't see

The lies that people can really be.

 

When all the world is full of shadows,

When my heart, all the lies, swallows-

When there is no one left to trust,

How can my heart, for friendship, lust?

 

In this world I have myself only,

Me,

Myself,

And I being lonely.

The End
