Because He Lied

Threw a rock into the river of silence,

When a storm didn’t pass.

Took the force of dignity to a new level

When I told him to kiss my ass.

Worried when I was told the truth

That it was a lie instead.

Stole what I could of integrity

Though dying, wouldn’t take a piece of bread.

Stood in the middle of rain

Screaming for salvation.

When it didn’t come to me immediately

I gave into temptation.

Kicked a stone and hurt my foot

Then cussed the nearest stranger.

Fortified walls to protect my heart

But don’t worry, it was never in danger.

Held divinity between sullen teeth

Bit a rabid dog.

Knew it wasn’t going to last

And I fucking hate the fog.

The only reason I stay somewhat sane

On the day that man died,

Was I thought for a moment he loved me

Because of the fact that he lied.
