lies

MY GHOSTWRITER

You don’t like what I’m writing now.

I can understand you 

not wanting to hear these things

but you must understand 

you’re the one putting me through this.

If you don’t like yourself in this light

then maybe you should step up.

Walk a straighter path 

and you won’t find yourself slipping

on uneven ground.

Do you know what it feels like?

I wonder if you still step out

on your lovers like you did me

I wonder if you still have your friends lie for you.

I wonder if they know you lie to them too.

I wonder if there is a girl betraying you right now

just as you have done to us so many times before.

 

If I’m honest, I hope so.
