I Spy

They always said tell the truth,

or at least learn to lie well.

But I was a grown-up before I realized

that some people want to be lied to.

 

I love you.

I’m sorry.

I didn’t mean it.

I swear I was true.

Believe me when I say

you’re the only one.

 

I always tell the truth so that I

don’t have to remember anything.

And I will ask for the truth

no matter how painful it is for you

to give it and for me to receive it.

 

I loved you.

And I’m not sorry.

I meant all of it.

Find faith somewhere else.

Believe me when I say

you’re replaceable.

 

Look me in the eye

and spot the lie.
