Poem Nomination—Day One

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

  1. I’ll let you know. I’m still trying to decide on a theme for the first issue. After I pick that I’ll stop by your blog and pick out which one fits the theme the best.
