there's truth in my lies.

Being broken inside makes you incomplete outside. 

No, she didn't look for flaws anymore, she had moved past them. This time she started being scared of her lies, 'cause they were now telling the truth.

It was like she was compromising with a part of herself, to make peace with the other half. 

But couldn't she realize that part of her would still be broken?

Not that she didn't like him. 

She knew he wasn't hers to keep. 

She was yet again doing the same thing, breaking herself, different piece at a time. 

“If only she could be so oblivious again, to feel such love without knowing it, mistaking it for laughter and bread with only the scent of jam spread on top of it.” 
― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief


  1. You should never lie to yourself.

    To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

    Shakespeare is read because the truth is timeless.

  2. I think I can relate. When lies start to become the truth, the world seems a little bit duller.

  3. I loved this line... Being broken inside makes you incomplete outside.... I think most if not all people are broken on the inside... it is what ultimately makes us stronger...

  4. Oh I just love this. Beautifully expressed, even the harshness of it...

  5. It lies how you convince yourself..often you stand ata point in your where two path leads to sunrise and another to darkness.. Choice lies in your hand.. Nobody else.

  6. So powerful I guess because most of us have felt or experience this at one point.
    Beautifully written dear.

  7. If lies become truths, and she'd lied about how well she was doing, wouldn't that then be good...

  8. Being broken inside definitely makes you incomplete outside, I can relate so well to this. Such beautiful writing.
