‘Lie To Me’ by Arunima

Feed me lies laced in
False hopes.
Keep me alive this way
Tell me broken mirrors
Can be fixed
With no trace of cut glass.

Make a house in the sky.
We’ll never get there
But it’ll be good to know
That we had a choice.

And let’s just walk
On a dingy dim lit road
Holding hands and living lies
Like lives of millions depended on it

Then maybe, just maybe
We’ll turn it to a murky truth
And we’ll find a way
Through this labyrinth
We call life.
