i'll do it the cheater's way

My head is spinning words
that my mouth can’t put a stamp to
if they find their way out
they will never find their way to you
all that I am
are all the things I choose to do
I’m putting out the flames
of a fire that you caused
it took a long time to turn my back so easily
caught between the struggles
and your chest
if I start searching for a home
I know where not
to find it
—  Gabrielle Willis, “liar turned cheater”
