Blue Lies


You walk on the sky
As it bends for you
To put your golden feet
You dine with Queens
Those are the similarities
Of your lies

Sometimes I wonder
How those words you chatter
Spring out of your lips
Right in front of the watchful eyes
Of your tongue
Without the lips closing up on them

Your lies know me so well
Even by my first name
I am so buried into them
But still can't let go
Even as I wish from you
Some little truism

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
