Lies that are needed

The end of a moive

The theater dark

Tears bubbling from my eyes

Falling over my cheeks

Tumbling until they hit the red chairs

You turning to me

Eyes wide


We weren’t watching a sad movie,

Were we?

No, no

Something else, I murmur, the movie was nice

What, you ask, what’s wrong

I lie

I use another one of my problems to calm your worries

A small problem

You probably think I’m stupid,

You’ve been through so much worse.

But the real reason I’m crying,

Is something I could never tell you.

It’s the fact

That you will go home

to where you live,

So far away

And you will have a friend

Who will get to love you as much as I

And you will make her feel whole

Make her feel wanted.

And I will be here,

Holding onto to the happy memories you gave me.

While you still could.

    But one day, love
    you will find someone
    in which you find
    a shard of yourself
    it might be a glance
    a phrase
    a smile
    but whoever it is
    they are out there
    and you

    (Once again, I just adore your poetry. ^-^ This one does not fail to meet my expectations. ❤ Beautiful!)

      I’m glad you like it. This is honestly way easier than writing stories so I think I’m gonna do more of this from now on.
