Your best shot.

"Nothing makes sense"

pause,

repeat.

"Nothing makes sense."

Hints of truth

unaccepted;

speaking through

tact rejected.

"Don't be like that"

pause,

repeat.

"Don't be like that."

Denials left

for the rats,

a heart bereft

eaten fast.

"I didn't mean it"

pause,

repeat.

"I didn't mean it."

Ironic lies,

distant tone-
crooked ties,

I'm still alone.
