Lies of Content

Bury me in your lies of content
So much of my time spent
Wishing I could understand you
Wishing you'd understand what you put me through

shed the tear of false hope
Lose the ability to cope
With the silence, and the answers lost behind a locked door
Lost in a place unknown...I fall to the floor

You are my best friend...
But I question what I am to you, and if anything ever really mattered in the end
Did you know I tell you everything...
And I thought you did too, but now I realize...I am told nothing

Grant me the lie of your fantasy
Slave away to hide in the mystery
How many others do you hide from,
Or am I the only one?

    Interesting write. It's true - many people hide things from others and confide in another. Everybody expresses themselves differently with other people. But some only stay hidden at all costs. Hiding things that people will sense are hidden. Cool poem. . . Always, Laura
