To be honest

I was a liar
lied about love
lied about my feelings
threw me into a dark pit
just for the sake of a culture
just because I finally got a man next to me

I knew better
I should have been better
but I lied
now I walk around with the words
imprinted on my forehead


and I hope that the next one
truly loves you
doesn’t say cause she’s supposed to
but she wants to


I lied,
for the sake of a culture
that made me feel like this was it
a man is beside me and I have achieved it all


I lied
I lied
I wish those words could curl backup
vanish off into the air
and you never felt them
never swallowed them in
