Little lying letters

Little lying letters

A Poem by em810

sometimes you can't say the right thing until the wrong moment


I’m slowing down

Twisting in and out of vines in my path

Restricting me

Wrapping around me

Squeezing me

Forcing the words I didn’t want to say out

Forcing fake feelings

Letting go of little lying letters


I’m on my way again

Avoiding the facts with those lined lies

Choking me

Searing my throat

Burning my thoughts to ashes

Burning my desires

Burning the right words

Let go of those little lying letters


I’m far away from you

Wishing I could be the one with the right words

Taunting me

Haunting my every daydream

Steeping in hot blood

Swooping in at the wrong moment

They crumple as they hit oxygen

Falling to the ground

Ashes, ashes

Of a forgotten fire

Had to replace those little lying letters
