Truth and lies

I saw lies
Behind your smile
And truth
Behind your eyes
The ones that sparkled
Now lost their light
And a wry heart
Withered under the weight.

Inquiry

You ask if I have ever
Distrusted
You. But that is the wrong question
I distrust everyone
Because what I have found is that
People usually do not deserve my trust
And most especially you because
You have earned it
Which is far more dangerous.
Ask me if I have ever
Trusted
You, and I will have no choice
But to be honest
And say yes,
I have.

Clouded Judgement

Skyward gaze, flash floods
Rain comes hammering down
Third eye closes, defenses rise
Not from an enlightened truth
But from the mutilation of war
Waters rush, beneath silent footsteps
A thunderstruck race to the end.

Memories

Memories stain like pen on paper,
A moment now, a memory later.
You wish to forget, a day it will fade,
One bad moment, it will all concave.
All the bad will compress your soul,
Unlock the memories, you thought were old.
Here again, at the starting line,
Ready to pretend you're fine.

Truthfully

The truth is that I am not ready to hear it.

Dreams of the Reality

I wish my sugar coated lies were the sour based truth.
I wish the truth was nothing but a nightmare.

I just wish I wasn't hurting you by lying,
And causing even more damage by being honest.
I wish my silence wasn't hurting you.

I just don't know what to do because either way, no matter what I say or not say will hurt you.

I can only apologise even though I know it hurts.
I'm sorry

Initial Mistake

If you suspect that you've made a mistake
And it's me
You have
But not at all the mistake you were thinking of
Initially

4 words, A quenched thirst

A first time for me,
First time I was first,
First to say it;
'I love you'
Uttered with confidence
The shadowed fear was the worst
Like a drought in my mouth,
Had your response
A pause fallowed by a glance.
A response, 4 words.
4 words
Quenching my thirst.
