First of all I’d like to thank fromchrissywithlove for nominating me. It was hard for me to find three people to pass this on to but I just kind of chose out of my readership and the blogs I follow.
Sorry if you are unprepared for this, but honestly that is sometimes when we get our best work. So, without further ado here is my first quote and poem response.
No one forgets the truth; they just get better at lying.
—Revolutionary Road Richard Yates
Lie to me
Tell me a fib
Say anything to make our future seem less glib
Tell me a story
Make it seem real
Even though I know how you really feel
The truth cuts like a knife
We can’t be friends
The road we went down has too many bends
I hold on to the good times
The ones in my head
The reasons I just can’t get out of bed
