I wear my lies like armour.
Sliding off the metal before sliding into our bed.
Truth draped over my bones in the form of flesh.
Sinew and bone cannot tell a lie.
I refuse to speak.
These lungs and the air that escapes them have been steeped in the blackness of untruths.
Any breath taken or recieved is living proof.
And your lips and their softness slide across my neck like the tightning of a noose.
Bringing a little more death with every touch of love, of which I am unworthy.
As the darkness of night envelopes us,
as the quickness of your body and the force of your rhythm masks my unwanted pleasure,
I am helpless.
I lie, unprotected and powerless.
Thick soot billowing out from my lips
with each labored breath.
My truth is everywhere.

"cannot tell a lie - I refuse to speak"

People lie a lot. For example, if anyone has ever told you you were a genius, they were lying. You´re a maven. With your stroke, the ever shifting tears of Melpomene are woven themselves into a single current, forming a thread of pure...

Yeah, I am dazzled.
