Lies

You used to tell me
to stay sober.
I used to smoke a blunt
before you would come over.
I always said that
I was just tired.
You never really
believed me.
You just wanted to be
with someone,
and you hated to fight,
so you would let it go.
But we were both unhappy,
even though we said that
we were in love.
Sometimes it’s just
easier to lie.

  4. There are all too many who live such lies. My late wife started to think of herself as one of them, but I fixed that and made her love a true thing.

  5. It IS easier to lie. Problem is, once you start, you can’t stop. Focus on being true to yourself and if a woman doesn’t like it, she can walk. That’s the only way until you meet someone who loves you for you. (Good luck with that. All women see men as something to be changed or fixed. LOL!)
