how many deceptions 
have I quietly
assimilated

I have become
the swallower of bitter pills
learning to choke
down a quandary
of murky
illegitimacies
I wash them down
with vodka and gin

in the end
love is just truth
and nothing more

if only you knew
how sweet 
purity tastes

I too like this poem. It's easier to deceive ourselves if we are hammered.

As always, you hit the target, so often hung upon my own heart.
