Falling asleep remembering lies that had been built around lies

Lies to impress people

Lies to make life more convenient

Lies, I didn't even know why I told them


Not this time

New job

New leaf

A conscious effort to always tell the whole truth


We lunched at a restaurant with set menus

‘Are you veggie?' I was asked


Lunch was served

And I realised everyone had a plate of fish in front of them

Except for me


‘So you don't even eat fish?' I was asked

‘Er… no.'

The future flashed before me

Explaining the lie to friends in case they met my workmates

No tuna sandwiches for lunch

It had happened all over again
