Dear Diary

Source

I found somebody’s diary
in the trash.

The last words
involved some guy
who’d been lying to her
all these years.

But, according
to an earlier entry,
they’d only met
three months previously.

Makes me think that
if there’s to be a relationship
in my future,
I’d better start lying now.
