Lies spill from your lips with ease,

Wonder if they leave a bitter taste

like it does when I hear them.

Does the flavor of misconception

caresses your palate fruitfully

like they once did with me?

My taste buds no longer crave

the flavor of your false narratives

and tales you love so much.

I’ll just continue to let your spiel

of distorted truth roll over my tongue

where I can discern truth from lie.

The taste is so bitter where it was once

sweet enough to make me want more,

but now it’s just a nasty tang in my mouth.
