just write: pretty lies.


the lies sounded oh so pretty
from your lips into my ears,
you draped them on me like precious jewels,
which I polished with my tears.
you gave me diamonds, pearls, and rubies
made from lies told as the truth,
and I still wear them every day
for they’re all I have left of you.

  11. Stunning. You know when a young kid belts out a song that is so deep and you wonder how they can convey that message so well when they obviously have not experienced that depth? I am curious about your life, Chelsea!
