Poem: Tall Tales.

I suddenly sought

a way out,

_____________________

I couldn’t contemplate

another night,

_____________________

of tall tales

and low lies,

_____________________

I loathed languishing

in your sight.

_____________________

I licked my wounds

and felt my heart melt away

_____________________

like ice cream left outside

on a sunny day.
