How Do I Deal
by Gilly Wigley
All I want to do is believe the lies that nobody told me
when the world starts to run away
and I can't keep up.
I just want to curl up and read it
cause the film is going to fast
and my brains out of breath.
this loud silence is poking me in the side
I can't swim in this pool of anger
all I want to do is believe the lies that nobody told me
shut out the truth that's written on my face
believe that the only comfort are the whispers in my head
Author's Note: An old poem of mine from back in high school.
