swallow

i believed you
and all of your lies
all this time
i swallowed them
all the lies
all of them
i didn’t think
i didn’t know
what they were
they tasted sweet
every one
til they hit their mark
turned sour…acrid
like really cheap wine
they intoxicated me
nauseated me
they say i chose this
way back when
and now just pretend
not to know
yeah i accept them
every lie i participated in
every time i looked away
every single time
yeah i chose to learn
but knowing that
won’t stop me
wanting
to vomit out
the bitterness
i’ve swallowed
