Masks

My truth, my deceit, these lies I feed. I'm no longer sure, no longer in want. I've given up on this, this lie, this discord. Now I'm lying in a pool, my lies drowning who I am. My thoughts, my disfunction, finally gnawing away at me. I'm not sure what is true, no longer sure what is false. I've lost myself, to these falsities I play so well. Now I'm sitting in a hole, far from what I used to be. My decay, my distrust, now formed in a simple act. I'm longer in control, for this is no longer me. I've fallen from this place, to a world in my imagination. Now I wander aimless, no longer with my soul.
