Lie And Say - Poem by Kelsey Martinson

Lie
Tell me everything's okay
Lie and say
That this hurt I feel
Will go away

Lie
Say that I will forget
Lie and say
That I will one day
Not remember this regret

Lie
Tell me I'll feel better someday
Lie and say
The dark cloud
Will go away

Lie
Say what I need to hear
Lie to me
Tell me anything but the truth
Because I cant deal with the heartache and fear

Lie
Say You'll stay
Lie and say
You love me
And want to keep me safe

Lie
Say it'll only last a moment
Lie and say
Anything to keep me
From feeling broken

Lie
Say that you care
Lie and say
It so my heart
Can begin to repair

Poet's Notes about The Poem

To my friend, who would tell me the right lies. He taught me that sometimes we need lies to help us through life. Not all lies are bad ones. So thank you.
