Truth

May 27, 2005

was I given

permission to write

nothing

but the truth

did I ask you

to write about truth

about me

and of you

leave me alone

I cannot stop now

leave me

so I may

sail slowly away

you and I

we’re in my eyes

so forget your thoughts

of me telling lies

I cannot

weave untruth’s rot

behind my own eyes

or in my unheard cries

to sail away

and live in my truths

without

your blindness

do I cut you

to tell the truth

shatter

our friendship

let me go free

if I stop, I’ll die

believe

so I may

escape this cold grey

for I see

the truth in thee

you cannot accept

that my eyes are set free

my mind leapt

to find that cleft

behind your dark eyes

but I found only lies
