liar (the only true you ever knew)

liar (the only true you ever knew)

“Mendacity is a system that we live in.”
―Brick in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Tennessee Williams

i am a liar
this is a lie

i am all mask
and misdirection

but only as a present
for you

and you
and you
and you and you

‘tis the season?
then, yes, more lies

deeper and deeper lies
in red foil and green bows

yet there is one thing true
and more complicated

i cannot tell you when it began
when truth turned to lie

and merged as one

when my heart had become
only yours and always yours

and i had to lie to prove
how deep you are buried there

like a flag waving above the spot
of the only true you ever knew

i am a liar
this is a lie

feel my hand reaching out?
maybe this is all i should have offered
