Books, Truths, Lies



You want to know who I am
Look at me when I speak
I am the pages in a book
You read me one by one
telling you everything
telling you nothing
running truths and lies together 



I possess you
In your addiction
To know who I am
I am a book
We are all books
With our truths and lies
When the story is over

We are cast aside.
