And when Lay I rotting beneath the sky
From thy doom, I’ve told I’ve fled
You know no difference to who I alike, have died
Like these feelings of unknowns bled
You’ll never understand for neither ever did I

alright alright alright...why is this called the lie? Because this poem makes no sense ...i dont like letting anyone in on the secret but here it is..granted each line makes a little sense almost like the poem means something about dying and we are all alike in death but idk it means that but it dosent realy either..its confusing and meant to sound intelligent but isnt...but this is my way of showing how words and fancy rhythmn and pattern can make a poem sound so deep and intelligent when really its nonesense...so this poem absolutley has a deep meaning but it aint in the words but the title and if it seems too deep to understand the meaning ...its because there isnt one..its a lie...the last line "youll never understand for never did I" hah yea its actually right there i dont even understand what i just said ....i mean it kinda sounds like it means alot of things and in a way it does...i had a guy in highschool who had a group of followers who thought he was a genius and oh so deep and would put him on a pedestal...and it was foolish i know but i one day said ...none of your poetry makes sense .and he was like uhh..idk maybe it was mean of me but leading people around and getting girls to fall all over you by posing as something your not gets me ...if i thought he thought they made sense itd be fine but he knew they didnt and ate up the attention He got.. ..he could actually be talented if he wrote stuff that was coherant ...i was young and yea maybe bitchy but this poem was dedicated to him in my mind...he was so full of himself and his symbolic depth on paper was a lie ..hes probably truley talented but didnt feel like actually taking time to write the thoughts ..instead used his dark poet musician stereotype to get attention..and used his followers lack of vocabulary to dazzle them..and I despise phony people ...even if its petty...it wasnt fair to the people who were in Awe of him..he told me once that he lied to people and told stories cuz it was his little joke on the world... pft ..he was basically making a fool out of them and they were more dedicated to their school work than he was ..they were honor roll students most of his little Group.and ended up with good jobs and doing great in college ..all of them a hell of a lot more acedemically smart than i ever was in school and there he was "teaching" and explaining to them what his poems meant as if he knew everything..and man he got off on it ..but alot of people found him unbearable ...now a days? id prob just let it be but then i couldnt bear the superficial act he was pulling..be real to yourself and to others...dont lead anyone to think your better than them and dont let anyone do it to you ...i realize it was petty.. but i think the point behind this poem is real ...even if it was a childish schoolgirl problem or not

**Note ** all my poems are copyrighted and have codes to prove ownership ... While I doubt anyone here does this ..still have to say Don't steal other people's work wether a poem is good enough or not .... It's personal and directly speaks from the soul of the writer and to take their work and say it's yours ..it's wrong and unnatural ..your stealing a peice of them ...it's nothing to do with money or rights...it's so much more than that...its happened to me .. It can happen to anyone .. It hurts and I always speak out against it even if to most it seems pretentious...

Doom,hopeless, lies
