=Deception of perception=

Tell me sweet little lies
that you like it
that I'm beautiful
that it's good.
Tell me small white lies
that you like me
that it's beautiful
that it's never been so good.
Say all the words
I want to hear,
I'll know they're untrue
but I won't shed a tear.
Say all those pretty words
to make my heart skip a beat.
I'll believe them all
that'll be my downfall.

White Lie

– Another oldie –

There’s always one
a sweet little lie that
you tell yourself so your
heart won’t die.

Wretched hope
lingering
on
clutches the mind
with it’s hurtfull
claw.

It comes
along with
despair
for where there’s
hope
there’s always
fear.

That’s why it is
so bad
hoping
and
despairing
as one never had.

That’s
what
creates the lie
surrendering
to hope
while letting out a cry.

Hope against
hope we always
keep hoping
and that is why
we tell that
little

white

lie.
