The Anneslee Poems: Lie To Me

I see it coming
like a freight train
a mile down the tracks
ready to roll over me
but not to stop
at a moment’s notice.

They say the truth
will set you free
but all the truth
does is set free
your need
to get out
as fast as you can
because I’ll never catch
you –
you’re just a boy
dressed like a man.

I see you running,
desperate to escape
an impossible situation
where you cannot save
or be saved.
You’re already out
the door
and your feet
haven’t even moved yet.

This is why
I lie –
nobody wins

being honest.
