overprotective parents raise the best liars.
but seriously, i mean i don´t even do bad things and i have to lie a lot
We lie to protect them from the truth they have proven they can’t handle. Comes in handy for awkward social situations too.
i never started smoking because my father’s teeth
are stained yellow-orange and there is a persistent crow
living in his chest which
constantly rattles its feathers whenever he tries
i was always cautious about drinking because my mother’s uncle
died with his liver shouting for revenge
as his body coded on a hospital bed
so i space out the times i take shots and i don’t give in
if it’s not a weekend and i keep bottles away from me
but i loved you
and of every addiction i’ve ever had
this one is killing me.
