Let's play catch!

I'll hold the truth,

And throw it at the wall.

Each time, when it bounces just out of reach,

And I snatch,

You can laugh cruelly in my ear,

Mocking me, spiting me.

As always.

Chuckling as I deny myself what I need.

What I need to know.

Give up? No.

That'd be too sensible.

I'll just keep on throwing,

And missing.

"Talking to yourself again, dear?"

"Yes Mum, just playing a game."
