The lovely face I once knew is no more.
The smiles that was constantly on your face has disappeared.
The halls are no longer filled with your laughter or silly games.
Darkness has replaced and erased everything about you.
Turned your youthful smile to a bitter slant
True age shows in the creases on your face
The difference between us is clearer every passing day.
They say with age comes wisdom, but so far I only see
everything, but what they promise.
via Daily Prompt: Age
Secrets are like a drug
We experiment for the hype
Sample here and there
the guilt we first feel washes off
we then don’t realize that we are lying
not to just others but to our self
before we realize we cannot seem to stop
we let it sweep us off our feet
Now we are addicts
without a thought we buy and buy
days run together
we lose track of what is real
everything loses its structure
vision starts to blur
who are we?
Who are you?
I am lying to you and you are to me
We rush through these streets just to lie
We are together but not together
Bad habits grow in cement
I’ve changed and you don’t seem to see
That I am not me anymore
And you are not who you pretend to be
Our imperfections are out for the world to see
I am no miss congeniality
