Tsk

there must be some joy in giving into a lie
and then some more in living it.
there must be some joy in telling yourself that it's the truth
and then in saying it till you believe it.
there must be some joy in laughing till your jaw hurts
and then in slow falling off a cliff.

the world has its own joys, we are just too busy counting tears.

The wry 'tsk' at the beginning of this makes me want to let out a little scream in satisfaction. I cannot tell you how completely I am at peace with this bit of writing. This is perfection itself, B!
