Beautiful Lies

By Beatrice Preti, Class of 2017

Beautiful Christmas, beautiful eyes
Hiding the pain of beautiful lies
Lies so perfect you could almost believe
That they were truths, no need to deceive
Beautiful scarves and beautiful hats
Emblazoned on cardigans and front-door mats
Keeping in heat, while keeping out pain
Darkness and shadows, flurries and rain
Beautiful lights upon beautiful trees
Lit by the window for the whole world to see
Beauty in darkness and beauty in sin
Beauty so that none see the lies harboured within
Beautiful sunsets for beautiful lies
Trapped in a fire burning beautiful lives
Lives up in flames, with the fires we cry
There’s a beautiful silence, as all our lies die
