You Ask – I lie (The Truth)

You Ask; how I am?
I lie; I am happy
To preclude your concern
The truth; I feel crappy

You ask; what I’m doing?
I lie; keeping busy
To distract your attention
The truth; engulfed by misery

You ask; am I coping?
I lie; I am good
To maintain your high spirits
The truth; despair my mood

You ask; Loves feelings expired?
I lie; my words circumvent
To offer foreclosure
The truth; concealing torment

You ask; we’re just friends?
I lie; friends yes, nothing more
To release you from commitment
The truth; you, I adore

You ask; we’re over each other?
I lie; yes, we made it through
To protect your sweet mind
The truth; I still love you

You Ask – I lie (The Truth)

Artist's Description

Just trying out a different writing technique here…..would welcome some feed back, good or bad, please feel free to be critical :)
Sentiments here are drawn from a combination of past personal experiences, along with imagined thoughts, emotions and feelings encountered in a break up.
So, don’t any of you guys be thinking me a tormented soul just now…. just fiction….OK! ……Then again, maybe that’s another of my cover up lies…..Hahahah :)
