THIS IS NOT POETRY

Static

Today I tried for you
Today I cried with you
Today I lied to you

It's so easy to deceive
Making up stories just so I can breathe
White noise on the stereo
White lies behind closed doors
Are you alright?
Are you okay now?
Watch what you do
Watch what you say
And how

So many miles across the lighted screens
So many breaths between our heartbeats
I give so much and you give nothing back
What's life like carrying a battle ax
Slung over your shoulder?
There's loves and there's hope here
But you'd rather attack
