Just lies

autumn

Don’t lift me up
just to let me fall.
Don’t praise me
just to please me.

You feed my ego
until I start to believe.
But nothing is true
just lies, lies, lies.

I was soaring high.
Like an eagle, flying.
I ate up your praises.
My confidence grew.

Nothing is as it was.
Was there any truth,
under all the layers?
Will I find one truth?

Now, so much uncertainties.
It is eating at me.
It fester in my mind.
And spreads to my heart.

Trust is tarnished.
Hurt fills the heart.
Nothing makes sense.
Just lies, lies, lies.
