I write a poem for you
Then set it ablaze
It told lies
About back in the days
Our first kiss
I really don't remember
It lied about saying I love you
I never meant it.

The paper burned
As many things in my life
Your smile
Your eyes
The said lies
I jotted down poetry for you
I take it all back

The last one I wrote for you
Is now ash
A whole bunch of nothing
On a napkin out the pack
I wrote about my misery
I'm taking it all back

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post. It's a really thought-provoking poem about the lies we tell others (and maybe ourselves?).
