Why do you lie to me?
by Candy Simpson
You get my hopes up so high.
Why don't you just tell me?
But instead you make me cry.
Do you even care about me?
You never even call.
What if I died tomorrow?
Would you care at all?
You hardly even know me.
Do you remember my birthday?
It really hurts me inside,
Because I think about it every day
What if I called tomorrow?
And I wanted to move in?
Would you say okay?
Or would you lie again?
At night before I close my eyes,
A tear rolls down my cheek,
Because I think of the lies you told,
Throughout this passing week
Mum's always telling me
Not to cry, and it'll be okay.
I just want to know,
Why do you treat me this way?
I feel a part of me died
Every single time you lied
I wish I knew what you were thinking
Even though my heart is sinking
Dad, you have a son now?
Why didn't you tell me?
He's eight now,
is this the reason you didn't call me?
Really, I don’t understand what’s going on
Are these the lies I should depend upon
Is he the reason I haven’t seen you in eleven years
Or was it not him, was it all the beers
I still don’t understand why you stayed away
But I’m telling you this now I am not here to play
You think my mind is a playground
Well here we go, Because this is my rebound.
