Thanks to @abimopectore for the prompt "I know what it's like to tell yourself a lie so often that it becomes the truth." I don't think I could do justice to it but i tried!

#26 Truth? (Sonnet)

Like clockwork,

Like clockwork, I roam around my dungeon

Like clockwork, I roam around my dungeon For I must,

Like clockwork, I roam around my dungeon For I must, I must feel them all

They're my very air

They're my very air and my soul's luncheon

They're my very air and my soul's luncheon Those swirling patterns itched

They're my very air and my soul's luncheon Those swirling patterns itched on every grayish wall

Each brick

Each brick I have carefully

Each brick I have carefully crafted with lies

Each brick I have carefully crafted with lies And brick by brick have built

Each brick I have carefully crafted with lies And brick by brick have built this castle vault

Each day

Each day I recite every single one

Each day I recite every single one to memorize

Each day I recite every single one to memorize And each day they turn into

Each day I recite every single one to memorize And each day they turn into truth a little more without a fault

No no,

No no, they aren't lies now,

No no, they aren't lies now, shouldn't be anymore

No no, they aren't lies now, shouldn't be anymore Each lie must've turned into my absolute truth,

No no, they aren't lies now, shouldn't be anymore Each lie must've turned into my absolute truth, to them I belong

'Cos I have chanted them,

'Cos I have chanted them, all day all night long,

'Cos I have chanted them, all day all night long, till my throat was sore

'Cos I have chanted them, all day all night long, till my throat was sore My castle of lies,

'Cos I have chanted them, all day all night long, till my throat was sore My c̶a̶s̶t̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶l̶i̶e̶s̶,

'Cos I have chanted them, all day all night long, till my throat was sore My c̶a̶s̶t̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶l̶i̶e̶s̶, castle of truth

'Cos I have chanted them, all day all night long, till my throat was sore My c̶a̶s̶t̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶l̶i̶e̶s̶, castle of truth now stands tall & strong

If lies turn truth,

If lies turn truth, when spoken enough

If lies turn truth, when spoken enough Does an unspoken truth

If lies turn truth, when spoken enough Does an unspoken truth then turn into a bluff!
