Lie, Baby, Lie

Did it really feel good?
To look me in the eye
Open up your pretty mouth
Just to lie and lie and lie

Was there any guilt?
As I smiled and said okay
Eating up your stories
Tasty fibs you sent my way

Did you think that you were smarter?
To be able to fool me
With practiced explanations
And rehearsed apologies

Is my trust up on your mantle?
A trophy that you won
Do you gaze at it and chuckle
Because deceit is so much fun

Did you turn it into a challenge?
To have me take you at your word
Accepting all the fairytales
No matter how absurd

How stupid you must have thought of me
A moron through and through
A foolish, naïve believer
Who put her faith in you

Lie, baby, lie
Tell me what I want to hear
Lie some more, my angel
Just to ease my fears

Lie, baby, lie
The truth will only hurt
Lie then kiss me, darling
To give me some self-worth

Lie, baby, lie
I'll believe anything you say
Lie then croon you love me
So we will not fight today

Lie, baby, lie 
No guilt and no regrets
Lie about our everything
Lie so I'll forget

Forget the inconsistencies
Forget all of the doubt
Fill my head with fantasies
Other things to think about

Tip my face up towards you
Swim deep into my eyes
The pools of blind devotion
And then lie, baby, lie

  • It's that time of the year when Linkdin tells everyone I've been at my job for X amount of years, and people I sorta/kinda know feel compelled to keep the lines of networking open and shoot me a "congratulations." Linkdin is a mixed bag of people. It's mostly surface acquaintances that put out a thread of "keep in touch" for a "just in case" moment when my knowledge or connections may benefit them...and vice versa.

    Please, Thank You, and Tongue Biting

    Is it too much to think that someone acknowledges the receipt of a gift when they get it? I've been taught at a young age to always give gratitude immediately for a gift, a favor, or anything someone bestows upon you in kindness. (Even the ones that are not done in kindness.) Call it the Mommie Dearest

    I know I've neglected this space. I will have a new post tonight! I promise.

    Do you know what sucks about suddenly finding some happiness after managing to get by on "okay" for so long? That first stumble makes you realize how precarious that status is. Anything can send you flying off that tiny little platform. In the beginning of anything that sparks the chemical euphoria in your brain, it's always perfect. Always awesome. Flawless.

    I've hesitated jumping back on this because a lot of it ends up being really
