Remember that there are people who don’t mind when you lie to them.

They don’t mind when you tell them stories.

So long as you tell a good one.

For they have heard many.

They need you to make them believe.

Believe the things that they don’t see.

If you lie to them

You’ll have to believe

That these are the things you can’t feel

You’re humming lies to yourself now

And you don’t see

That these are the people that never believe.

They know every story that has ever been

And for all of our lies

There are hells of equal rim.

8.4.15.

What did you ask for when the day was out?
When the bridges of red brick
Fell to clay
And then nothing
Like make-believe

I’ve had you there in the back of my mind
I’ve had you there all this time

And this will take me out
The way we’ll always end up being casualties in their moments of clarity

And this will make me into something else
The way I rise from pieces of me
I haven’t seen before
Now I know where it hurts the most.

Momina Arif.

Remember the days when the waves could less than tug the cliffs at their feet.

And the nights when the turmoil of the tide couldn’t tear but a pebble in its might
