This Is What I Have Left.

You are a liar
and your lies are smooth and
golden, they are sweet like candy
they are mesmerizing.
They are deeper than the truths
of this sad
pathetic life we lead, and they
are sharper than the un-truths we cling to so desperately.
So I hang on your lies and
then the truth stings more
and I face reality
with more clarity
and a bitter taste on my tongue.
Which is all I have left of you.
