21 July 2014

With a burst of energy
I popped out of bed.
That’s my first lie today,
There will be more ahead.

Oh honey,
Did you sleep okay?
Lie number 2
Is well on its way.

As I fake a ​smile one more time.
It’s easier to lie than whine.
If I never lie to you,
I’ll sure get reckless with the truth.
