Pretty Words

Pretty words were saidBut they were laced with liesOffering what I wanted and neededCloaked in a convincing disguise How could you call yourself a friend?A lover also, yes, but all the sameI thought I knew what this wasBut you’re treating it like a game Those pretty words from your lipsI latched onto them, it was…

Clouded Defenses

The clouds are rolling in again Inky black, thick, and full of doubt Covering me, smothering all that I am Until I can’t find my way back out My mind is a maze of questions My insecurities overlap and interweave Forcing me to wonder if the world I see Is one comprised of make-believe Was…
