Potion of Lies

by Sebastian August 2 months ago in surreal poetry
Report Story

when you're back at the crossroads

I survived

someone is trying to wake me up again

seeing the film in retrospect

is meant to get me out of this den

I got asked

'what if it's a getaway to honesty?'

sceptical in answering

'I feel like it shatters my modesty'

I raised a question

'Do I have to die a thousand deaths

to be a true artist?'

never want to witness the last breaths

Looking for the real

aware of the conflict in my head

bought another stack of myth

because I felt numb laying in my bed

The aftermath hit me hard

got lost in the highs

forgot to protect my energy

from the potion of lies.
