The biggest lie I was ever told came in the form of pen and paper from a scared little boy that isolated himself in order to fulfill everyone else’s expectations.
He was a wolf dressed in sheep skin. I was a blind puppet led to believe the best in people until one day he pulled out a knife and I felt the apparent strings detach.
Now I stand in the centre of four walls that someone worthy is trying to tear down. The lie is etched into each brick as a reminder to remain guarded of those who get too close – I love you, I’m in love with you, it’ll always be you.
