I am nothing without my thoughts and falsehoods

I live with my lies drawn around me like a blanket

Like a cloak, like a shield.

.

I am nothing without my love and truth

I live with my love curled up next to me like a sentry

Like you're holding vigil by my side.

.

I am nothing without everything around me

What I think and what I know become the same

And really, that's nothing.

.

What do I know without you?
