Through the muffled sounds of your deafening silence

You repeated a word that once was a lie.

Did she really fall as you said?

Or did she legitimately die?

Do you remember where you work now?

Or did you lose that part of you?

I’m not saying I want a relationship

I just want what is true.

How many women did you entangle

While keeping me on the line?

Were they all justifiable crimes

At least within your mind?

When I speak of you to strangers

They tell me how naïve I Delete repeated word

Whispered amongst my friends

Worried you had me hooked.
