Writers Lie

I lie.

But I don’t like lying.
Still, I do.

I lie on the things I write.
My emotions are real—
some, at least.

But I twist them
so as to appear dramatic.
Coz that’s how you should write.
And that’s what writers do.

I connive with words
and make them work for me.
So that every sentence
every phrase or even pauses
could trigger a feeling.

An emotion
so real
so honest
only a lie
could make them
come out.
