I Lie To Myself
In An Effort
To Make Me
Feel Better

It Works
For Awhile
But The Truth
Is A Hunter
And Always
Finds My Heart
And Soul
From The Reality
Of What Is

I Wanted You
But It Was
Not Meant To Be
And So
I Lie To Myself

I Say,
It Doesn’t Matter,
I Am Better Off
Without You,
And My Feelings
For You Will
Disappear In Time

I Lie To Myself
Hoping That Soon
I Will Arrive
At A Place In Time
Where I Won’t Care

And I Won’t Have To
Lie To Myself Anymore

  1. Nice poetry Chuck and I love the line “truth is a hunter” Very few people can hide from it, even those with power and wealth.

    1. Thanks so much Davy! Your comments always mean a lot to me! Happy you enjoyed this. We here in the U.S. are hoping against hope that Truth will win out here someday very soon! Have a great holiday!!!
