The Poetic Liar

Depicting all my thoughts
like words without meaning
my soul slowly rots
like a mother's gentle weaning

they tear down the wall
that makes me who i am
to see me stumble and fall
like the forgotten lamb

nothingness consumes me 
with each breath i take
and every thought i free
will ensure me to break

Of all the things, that do conspire
in my mind, madness's fire
will burn inside, until i tire
And i will be the poetic liar

    sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, ive come to find that, when someone say you are unbelievable, its cause you are a hard cold amazing
