What Lies Beneath.... 1/25/15

You don't see
The hate
The disgust
Under my skin
Every time
I see you
Every time
I hear your name
Spoken aloud
Or feel your breath
Poised on the edge
Of every lie
You tell yourself
To keep it all
Moving forward
Toward oblivion
You don't see
My hopes die again
With every pull of the pipe
And every illusion
You look at me
And see someone
Who has made nothing
Out of something
And you applaud my
For speaking in riddle
What I should just
Shout aloud

You don't see my
At what lies
