A Liars Truth
The wind cracks against my trembling skin
Like hundreds of invisible whips--
The northwest's angry sighs
But nothing hurts worse
Than the absence of your lips on mine.
And to tell it like it is,
I only feel the sharp edges
Of the world around me
When the specks in your eyes
Are hidden by tired lids,
And Save me from this fear-
Let me see those pretty eyes staring back
Kiss me and shield me from this pain
Allow me to keep my sanity,
As only you can keep me sane.
Look at me at tell me we will be okay,
That we are fine,
And will remain
I can't contain this storm alone
I need your strength to keep me warm
I'm needy; greedy
I'd say I'm sorry
but I can't find my words
Please hold me tightly
And relieve me of my wards
As only you can do.
I want to tell you my whole truth-
That I'm dependant on the feeling of your weathered skin
But my lashing tongue tells only lies.
"I don't need him." And "I can always leave him."
My greatest sin
I'm sorry that I'm broken inside
Too much to tell you honestly
And all that you bring
Mean everything to me
