Beautiful lies

We all tell lies

We all drink bitter truths made by our own hands

And expect the truth of it to age well under our skin

We all expect our flaws to diminish and fade

And expect the cracks and chips to melt forgotten into our eyes

We all tell lies

we all tell beautiful lies



Casting Stone

To live without regret is to not live at all
this is what I tell myself as I lay my head upon the pillow
and weep
morsels of should and should not soaking into cotton
and sheet
wrapping fists between
places of dream considering stone
knowing the first was mine
and alas
more are at my feet
cheap little lies
cheap little lies
cheap little

so I repeat
“to live without regret is to not live at all”

Perhaps one day I will believe it.
