The Lie

A hot wind blows in today,
Mixing my past with our present.
You stand like a guardian,
A sword-bearing angel,
Warning off the ghosts,
Lifting me above them.

You said, “No one can make
Another person happy,”
That we all choose to be
Or not to be, no question.
I believe that is the only lie
You have ever told me.
