I wove a web of lies,
It came back for me.
Trapped me in its net,
Ripped me from my disguise.
I planted a picture of a smile,
It haunted me at night.
Showed me how forced it was,
Wiped off my beam of beguile.
I hid my pain in a jar,
But I got locked inside instead.
I panicked---- There was no escape,
But to let it out in a secluded bar.
I packed up all my secrets,
It flooded my mind,
Conscience bugging me,
Relief in cigarettes.
So I ignored the cruel world,
Hiding in my words.
This arrangement has worked for years,
Life's been just fine this way.
