    Growing Up

    I don't know if it is lying or what but growing up in an alcoholic family, I often had to make excuses for others behaviour, I learned that sometimes it was easier to make up a white lie rather than tell the truth.

    I lied. I said I loved him

    but acted otherwise. I begged for him to stay with me but then I thought I couldn't handle being with him. I said it was okay about something, only to portray not being okay at all later on. I said I had what it takes to handle problems, then went shattered in the first dip. I...

    I am an excellent liar when I put my mind to it. I can tell a story with such precision that there is no question to my honesty. But why would I lie about such a thing as this? Why would I tell him it doesn’t matter, that I am not jealous of her and what he is giving her? Why...
