you say you
lie because you
care, and i
believe you;

i know you'd
use the truth
if you really
wanted to
hurt me
the truth is for special occassions

So true. Nothing ever hurts so much as the truth.. well, because that's what's true. It's really that simple. Sad nonetheless..

Yeah, this sounds very familiar... 

While you try keep it away, people ask "Why didn't you tell me the truth?"

Tell them the truth and they ask "Why couldn't you have lied to me instead?"

... I don't understand humans ._.

sad but probably true. How often do we try to guard people by not telling them the truth. Not sure that keeping things for yourself really helps though. Sometimes it kinda locks impotant things away for good.

i think sometimes, they can't be locked away. you can try and try but sooner or later, they always make their way to the surface.

yep and then it is usually worse. I believe it is better to just let things out. Altough I really have to learn to do that myself as well ...

It was rude and unnecessary. Some people are very sensitive to what others think. So please keep that in mind before you say something like that again. I think his/her piece was very well written.

I don't think is something like that, I think that is for a more sincere love, like from your parents, like when they lie to you about Santa Claus, they want you to have a "wish upon a star", something magical to believe to, anyways this is literature, and its magic is to let you interpret however you wish (´・ω・`)

The truth is an open wound, in bleeds, and yet I love my scars more than I do the lies. & yet I know this feeling all too well. This is magnificent, as is all of your works. You have a gift with words, and I enjoy your masterpieces so very much. :)
