self deception

i’m running from honesty
as too much truth
might reveal what is really inside

i’m running from honesty
as too much hope
might contrast with the despair in my eyes

i’m running from honesty
as too much discernment
might read my mind

so i’m running from honesty
i can lie to myself
but never to you
