They say I spin
a web of lies,
but webs are for spiders.
They catch their flies.

No, my lies are mirrors,
each a different reflection.
They fill up my house,
my sinful collection.

Sometimes I get lost.
There's so much confusion.
Which ones are real?
Which are illusions?

I try to back track,
but the mirrors turn me around.
I cry out for help,
but the mirrors block the sound.

I give up.
Hang another mirror.
In this one I'm cruel and cold
on the exterior.

How many reflections
will I become?
Which one is real?
Where have I gone?
This came from today, where I had to lie A LOT. I don't like lying, but sometimes I have to. There are things that people just can't know about me, but sometimes i lose track of what's truth and what's a lie. It's terrifying at times.
