January 2022 Poem 2 – You told me lies (covid version)

You told me this would all be gone soon

You told me this was just going to last a moment

Well, it didn’t.

This has been going on for what feels like forever

This never ending sickness swallowing us

The only light is a small torch that gets brighter every day

The darkness has shrunk, but we are still here

You told me that this would be over soon.

You told me lies
