Mom,

I lied when i said

I was out with some friends

I gained your trust after all these years

I’ve been very careful not to break it

if you ever ask about what i did

all i could say is,

he made me do it

I was given enough love

treated like a queen

I was given what was best

I wonder how i managed

to trail behind him

and forget what i deserved

You asked me if I was alright

I lied and said

I was just tired

when truth was i was tormenting myself

for deceiving the wrong person

and for not knowing 

who was worth lying for

Mom

I know you taught me well

I just couldn’t stop myself

now that i fell
